    on a side

    Instead of starting with a $100,000 machine and trying to lower its cost by orders of magnitude, he started with the cheapest materials available: a piece of paper about one centimeter on a side, able to wick fluid.

    I guess the above in red refers to "a (maybe square-shaped) piece of paper whose one side is about one centimeter long." Is that right?

    Thank you.

    It seems an odd thing to say, it's not clear what it means.
