Check the CSS spec for the definition of a "pixel", bearing in mind
your comments about comfortable reading distance.
Pixel units, as used in the last rule, are relative to the
resolution of the canvas, i.e. most often a computer display.
If the pixel density of the output device is very different
from that of a typical computer display, the UA should
rescale pixel values. The suggested "reference pixel" is the
visual angle of one pixel on a device with a pixel density of
90dpi and a distance from the reader of an arm's length. For
a nominal arm's length of 28 inches, the visual angle is
about 0.0227 degrees.
