This is incorrect; I urge you to read the CSS specifications on the
matter. CSS pixels do not map directly to device pixels.

In any case, UAs may effectively do whatever they like with respect to
font sizing, as it can all be explained in terms of the actual font-size
differing from the computed font-size due to the font matching algorithm.
