  Of course, but this is the standard \paper property and the whole
  point of the example in the documentation is defining variables.

  We may omit the unit and use the default one (millimeters). But I
  wonder if this is a bug or there's a better way to define such a

I thought the default unit was staff spaces? Don't quote me on that
 I thought that the main mess was that the definition of \cm changed
 one changed the default staff size.

 Perhaps the default unit of \paper properties is millimeters? That
 would make sense. While staff spaces make sense for elements of the

 I just made a test. A 208 line-width spans almost all the 210x210

 \version "2.19.45"

 width = 208
 stringName = "Wendy"
 aFivePaper = \paper { paper-height = 210 }

 \paper {
  line-width = \width
  ragged-last = ##f
  indent = 0


Well, I have no actual idea here.  I just know that stuff gets scaled
around in paper and/or layout blocks and I had a hard time figuring out how or why. Maybe it's different in \paper and \layout (and I think at
the very least in the \layout block of a \score markup), and maybe I
just haven't got the hang of it at all.
