On their site they mention 8,5"x11" as the form factor, but those are the dimensions of the entire device and not of the display itself.
Wired claims that the plastic logic screen is 10,7", but I really doubt it, to me it's more like 9,7".
Doing a bit of geometry over an image:


Comparing with kindle:
_ PL: 10.7" (6.4 x 8.5") (162,5 x 216 mm)
_ DX: 9.7" (5.5" x 8") (138,5 x 202 mm)
