That said, if you crop the margins from a paperback book it is much closer to 8" diagonal.
Err, your math is off. 4"x6" is barely over 7" diagonal. (Check your Pythagorean Theorem.) The 6" e-ink displays are close enough for the OP's wants.

A 10" diagonal would correspond to, for example a 6" x 8" display, which is huge.
