The rest of the world uses A4 paper for the same uses as an American uses letter sized paper.
A5 is almost the same as an "Executive Notebook" page.
Measurements in English units:
A5 5.83 8.26
A4 8.26 11.69
I hate to break the news to you ;-)
but it is YOUR paper that is being measured in strange medieval units (12 inches make 1 foot, 3 feet makes 1yard and so on...) the rest of world has moved to sensible decadic units looooong time ago.
So proper dimensions are:
A4 is 210x297 mm
Letter is 216x279 mm
