PDFs do not have a native resolution. That's part of their beauty. The
basic unit of measure in Reportlab is the point, because that's the
basic unit of measure in PostScript, but all of the measurements are in
floating point. You can specify as small a fraction of a point as you
need. If you need your font to be 13.2697 points, then do that.
