Dear Smith,
It is recommended to send Chimera questions to chimera-users at cgl.ucsf.edu (CC’d here) instead of to me directly.

I don’t know where that sentence came from, so I’m not even sure it is a Chimera question.  By “pixels” maybe the authors mean grid units. They probably just knew this about their own data without trying to get it from Chimera, but at least for the width of the box, you can see the grid dimensions just to the right of the dataset name in the Volume Viewer dialog.
