I meant effective pixel value of course -- similar to `getComputedStyle(elem, null).getPropertyValue('height')` in JS (this JS expression returns a pixel value like `38px` in all current browsers).

Exact CSS function name does not matter much here and could be whatever the spec editor consider appropriate.
