class Rsvg.Length

Rsvg.Length values are used in Rsvg.Handle.get_intrinsic_dimensions(), for example, to return the CSS length values of the width and height attributes of an <svg> element.

This is equivalent to CSS lengths.

It is up to the calling application to convert lengths in non-pixel units (i.e. those where the unit field is not Rsvg.Unit.PX) into something meaningful to the application. For example, if your application knows the dots-per-inch (DPI) it is using, it can convert lengths with unit in Rsvg.Unit.IN or other physical units.
