Whoever made those measurements were confused about the player height being scaled to match the world instead of the other way around.
HL2 seems to have complicated that. From here:

The 1 unit : 1 inch (or 12 unit = 1 foot) scale applies only to Human Character models (for reasons only known to Valve :/), not to Map geometry. For evidence see the Dev/ textures for doors, etc, in Hammer. The Hammer grid-snap increments also lend themselves to thinking of dimensions in terms of feet rather than inches, as they are simple multiples (or fractions) of 16 units. --Beeswax 12:19, 31 Jan 2008 (PST)
