I've reworded it a bit to:

   | The concrete object size is the result of transforming an object's
   | intrinsic dimensions into a concrete size using its specified size
   | and default object size. (See sections below.) A concrete object
   | size always has a definite height and width.

Let me know if this is adequate. (Note that the entire parent section
here is devoted to defining this transformation.)

That's covered in the last paragraph of that section.

Is there some way you would like that further clarified?
