[css3-page] examples in 3.3.2 (page size) are 'US-centric'(?)

There are two examples (excluding the first example for 'auto') given in
section 3.3.2 and both of them refer to US letter. I think at least one
of them had better use ISO A4, instead given that virtually all other
countries use ISO A4. Besides, as already pointed out twice, A4 is only
21.0 cm wide and 29.7 cm high instead of 210cm and 297cm. It might be a
good idea to use 21.0 cm and 29.7 cm instead of 210 mm and 297 mm
beceause numbers (21.0 and 29.7) are more comparable to 8.5 and 11 for
US letter than 210 and 297.

Thanks for your consideration,
