Why not add "How many inches long is the side of this book?"

The translation above is jelek

Like most of the world, Indonesia uses the metric system. Why are we learning words that will never be used there?

I think "how many inches is the side of this book" is a much better translation - but to my shock was not accepted when I typed it!

yes, having to say the length of the side of this book is unnatural
