those numbers are supposed to be the lengths of real, integer, complex
numbers, in bytes. In most cases they coincide with the "kind" parameter,
but in principle they aren't the same. I am not aware of any standard and
portable way to obtain that information in fortran-90 (but I am not at all an
expert in f90). The SIZE command reports the size in elements, not in 
bytes, of an array.
