NVM. Apparently it depends on several things, including manufacturer, OS, scaling etc.

So for example let’s say I want to set the card size to 4x6 in inches. The monitor may be 72 dpi, 96 dpi or something else depending on the resolution. Is there an LC way to do this, or will I have to use terminal to grok it?
