    The sentence could be more clearly expressed:

    The drawing of the Generator Room is attached. Please confirm the dimensions stated on the drawing.

    'Confirm' could mean many things. It could mean that the dimensions proposed on the drawing are acceptable to the receiver. It is up to the sender really.
