// Get the font height in PDF units, which 1/72 of an inch, i.e. in points 
double fontHeightPoints = pdfObject.TextProperties.FontHeight; 
// Convert to inches:  
double fontHeightInches1 = fontHeightPoints / 72.0; 
// Or use PDFDocumentPage.ConvertPoint to convert to inches: 
PDFPoint pt = new PDFPoint(0, fontHeightPoints); 
double fontHeightInches2 = pdfDocumentPage.ConvertPoint(PDFCoordinateType.Pdf, PDFCoordinateType.Inch, pt).Y; 
// And pixels: 
double fontHeightPixels = pdfDocumentPage.ConvertPoint(PDFCoordinateType.Pdf, PDFCoordinateType.Pixel, pt).Y; 

This value contains the external and internal leading of the text item, to get the bounds of the box that exactly surrounds the text object, use PDFObject.Bounds.
