dear xywu,

celldm(1) is obviously the lattice constant in bohr
(10.20 * 0.529 ~= 5.40).

if you have any doubts, please check out the files
INPUT_* in the espresso documentation directory first
(if you still have doubts, read the source code ;-)).

btw: you don't _have_ to specify celldm(..). if you
prefer using the traditional crystallographic constants 
(a,b,c) in angstrom, you can use them alternatively
(this is for example explained in INPUT_PW).

best regards,
