Units of "pixels" in a research paper on digital streak formation for optical payloads

Per the first link uhoh provided in their edit, $p$ appears to be the size of one side of a pixel, with units of length/pixel. I draw this conclusion from: Figure 6 in the paper, where p is labeled ...

Units of "pixels" in a research paper on digital streak formation for optical payloads

$$L_{st} =\frac{f \ v_{t, a} \ \tau}{\cos(\theta_{obj}) \ d \ p}$$ where tau is the exposure time, $f$ is the focal length, $v_{t,a}$ is the averaged value of the object's tangential velocity in the ...
