Screen Dimensions

Apple iPad Air have 9.7 inch screen which is ~ 71.6% of actual device size. Physical dimensions for Apple iPad Air device is 9.45 x 6.67 x 0.30 INCH or ( 240 x 169.5 x 7.5 MM).

Displaying of Units are in this order "Height x Width x Thickness"

Screen Pixel Density and CSS Pixel Ratio

"Pixel" is smallest unit/element of any display.

The total number of pixels that fit into an inch is referred to as "Screen Density" or "Pixel Density" and it measured as "Pixels Per Inch".
Pixel Desnsity have limits to display Pixels Per Inch depends on different screen sizes. When number of pixels per inch increases than it's screen-size limit, the Display resolution will increase but actual device width/height in pixels remain same. Actual device pixels are known as Device Independent Pixels or CSS Pixel Ratio.

Apple iPad Air have ~ 264 pixel density and actual pixel density is about ~ 132 so it have 2 xhdpi display pixel density.

Screen Resolution and Viewport

The sum of pixels which are displaying on a device is called as "Screen Resolution". and sum of actual pixels of any device is reffered to as "Viewport".

Apple iPad Air have 9.7" physical screen size and its resolution is about 1536 x 2048 Pixels with approximately 264 PPI pixel density. Apple iPad Air has viewport size 768 x 1024 Pixels and its pixel ratio is about 2.
