16开 is the same as what we would call A4. As you probably know, our system is based on starting with A1 - which has a surface area of 1 square meter and proportions 1:sqrt(2). To get to A2, we cut the A1 sheet in half. A3 is half an A2 sheet, and so on. That means A4 has 1/16 the area of an A1 sheet of paper, and that's where the 16 comes from. From this, I guess you would prbably be able to guess that A5 is 32开.
