That's going to cause quite a bit of confusion. I'd be very disappointed if I thought I was getting an A4 screen and it was only 7 inches.
I think that Lenovo is not used to dealing with the literary crowd that interprets Letter Designations as page sizes.

Their other two tablets are the Ideapad "K1" ($449) and their top of the line, but with just a plain vanilla name "ThinkPad."

Usually in their offerings, Idea pad is the less expensive version relative to the Think Pad. Comes about from when IBM owned the brand.

The ThinkPad tablet is more than just wonderful. It has a digitizer pen similar to a Wacom Tablet, but it costs $499! That is steep for me. I might pay that and more for my Notebook or Desktop but those are "producing" machines.
