I think I see the problem... this is probably clearer:

"CSS defined properties (e.g. 'font-size') must follow CSS syntax and
thus require units for non-zero <length> values. See 6.1 for a list of
CSS defined properties."

or even simpler:

"CSS defined properties (e.g. 'font-size') require units for non-zero
<length> values. See 6.1 for a list of CSS defined properties."

Oh, and it is meant to be added to the first paragraph, not an
independent paragraph.

OK, change to "require units for non-zero lengths".
