The guideline states that a touch target should be at least 44x44px on a non-retina display (88x88px on retina). The current iPad displays have a lower PPI than the equivalent iPhone display, so the touch targets are a bit larger. 1024x768px on a 7.85" has the same PPI as an pre-retina iPhone and therefor the touch targets will be the same size.
