size in units such as centimetres or inches

COMMENT: In Britain, the measurements of paper sheets are normally given with the short side first (768 × 1008mm), while the physical measurements of a book are normally given with the height first and then the width. The format of this book is 198 × 129. Note that in many countries, the measurements are given with the width first and height second, leading to much confusion. The measurement of type is based on the point system (one point is 0.3515mm in Britain and the USA; 0.376mm in Europe).
