Printing and Ledger paper type.



I am working on printing issues for gtk based Kicad at present time.
Recently implemented 'Ledger' paper type is confusing me a lot. It is declared as a paper of 17x11 in size.
The same time there is also a 'Tabloid' paper of 11x17 in size. What does it mean? It is commonly assumed
that the first value is the size X and the second is the size Y of a paper. That's why is it a kind of implicit logical 
orientation declaration (e.g. Portrait or Landscape) or is it an implicit declaration of a direction the paper
is fed into printer? Maybe it means nothing and it is just the same type of paper?
