By the way, from first link above:
"Otherwise, if 'height' has a computed value of 'auto', but none of the 
conditions above are met, then the used value of 'height' must be set to 
150px. If 300px is too wide to fit the device width, UAs should use the 
height of the largest rectangle that has a 2:1 ratio and fits the device 
width instead. "

And what if 150px is too small? E.g. on printer it could be 3mm  or so.
Do you know of the purpose of defining such "magic number" ?
