It does define the height of the line box (10.8 and 9.4.2).

It's true that the visual height of inline elements is defined in a
slightly vague way -- 10.6.1 allows something unspecified based on the
font -- but I think the Ahem font has metrics such that every reasonable
thing based on the font should lead to the same result.  Perhaps the
spec should limit the options to a set of choices.
