We don't know the Plastic Logic's exact screen size, but it is supposed to be ~150 ppi and if it is 1024 by 1280 (like the DR1000) this will be 6.8"x8.6". The diagonal size is then not quite right, but it is some where in this range.

We do know the 9.7" screen size by the way, it is 1200 x 825, 202.9 x 139.5 mm, or 226.4 mm (9.7") diagonal, see High Resolution Displays.

All the ~10" diagonal screens are about A5 (half of A4) in size. This means that you can show half a page at full size in landscape mode. However, for most people full page portrait mode will be ok if you clip the margins.
