Looks like css/data_types/length copies most of the content from
css/units/length.  Perhaps it might make sense to consolidate
everything from css/units under the css/data_types tree, to
accommodate everything else non-"unit" from that spec?  But I already
added some initial content, e.g. about color definitions.  Other
content from the CSS Image Values spec is not yet there.
