If a screen is 14 inches width and is set to a resolution of 1366
pixels/dots its horizontal DPI (Dots per Inch) are 1366/14 = 97.57
DPIs. It's that simple.
You can know the detected DPIs with the command "xdpyinfo | fgrep resolution".
A screen with a resolution of 1366x768 and 96 DPIs must be
((1366 dots / 96dots/inch)^2 + (768 dots / 96dots/inch)^2) ^ 1/2 = 16,32 inches

No idea about Gnome. But IMHO 9 can be read without problems and
doesn't waste space.
