I agree that that seems the more readable order, but since there's
no benefit to requiring that order, I think it's better to leave
it order-flexible. I'll also note that the natural order is probably
influenced by which language you speak: '5em circle' sounds better to
an English-speaker, whereas 'circle 5em' probably sounds better to
someone whose native tongue is French.

True. But it's optional; you can leave it out if you prefer.
