I've made this edit by rephrasing the section:

"""
If the cross size property of the flexbox item is ‘auto’, it resolves
to the length necessary to make the cross size of the item's margin
box the same size as the line, while still respecting
‘min/max-width/height’ constraints as normal.

The cross-start margin edge of the flexbox item is placed flush with
the cross-start edge of the line.
"""
