technically, 0.1c is computable but not made explicit in the spec; it is
computable since a cell's dimension is computed from knowledge of the root
extent's dimensions, which yields a integer or real number dimensions of a
cell (in pixels)

nonetheless, we may wish to consider restricting <length> to integral
numbers for some units, e.g., px and c
