Unfortunately, units referring to an element's width like that lead to circularities in the layout system pretty quickly.

Fortunately, we now have the [`aspect-ratio` property](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-sizing-4/#ratios), which is being implemented *right now* in browsers. ^_^

I'll go ahead and close this, since `aspect-ratio` does what you're asking for.
