Once again, the size of an epub 'page' has NO relation to the screen size of the device the book is being read on. It's a standard 1024 characters.
Since hard-back books do not have a standard number of characters per page (it varies by font size and type, as well as the size of the paper used), you shouldn't expect there to be any correlation between a paper book and an ebook.
