it refers to the nominal diameter, which corrisponds roughly to the
internal diameter, but not exactly. You could look up the exact
measurements in the standards which describe the thing, if you know which
standard applies (for which use the pipe is standardized).

In OSM we should use the term "nominal diameter" or "DN" and not "internal
diameter", because this is easy to find out (is written on it).

Cheers,
Martin
