Not sure. `width` can be (and usually is in CSS) paired with `height`, so I see your point, but it can also be paired with `length`. Given that scrollbars are long-and-thin things, I doubt anybody would be confused about what we're talking about when using the word `width` about a horizontal scroll bar.

As a non native english speaker, I'd rather keep `width` than `thickness`.
