Line height calculations in presence of replaced content

there is confusing statement:

"On an inline-level element, 'line-height' specifies the height that is used in the calculation of the line box height (except for inline replaced elements, where the height of the box is given by the 'height' property)."

In particular it is not clear what box is implied in "the height of the box is given by the 'height' property". Is it line box that contains replaced content (would be strange, but line box is mentioned earlier in sentence and creates confusion) or is it content area of inline element? Is the following test case
correct or not?
