Kodak CCD Inside Pentax Medium Format DSLR

Kodak announced that its 40MP KAF-40000 CCD is used in the newly launched Pentax 645D medium format DSLR. The 40MP CCD is based on 6um pixels and said to have 1.7 times larger area than 35mm DSLR sensors.

  1. 864 sq mm for 35mm size sensor (24x36mm)
    2700 sq mm for medium format (45x60mm)

    so why is it 1,7x bigger? what is the purpose of calling a camera 645 (6 x 4,5 cm) if the sensor is only 44x33 mm ? .. what an odd format anyway.
