The question is not what you would assume the units to be.  Please just state
what the units are.  A user will not necessarily assume anything about the
units.  They could be points or anything else.  It doesn't take much to tell
users what they are.  You need only add two words: "in pixels".

Search for "pixel" in the manual and you will see that this is standard
procedure.  It is normal for doc to tell users what the units of measurements or
quantities are.
