In the MIF, search for "master." You'll find this:

I don't have MIFmucker or other MIF exploring tools installed, and I
can't remember how they report this kind of information. Probably a
text cruncher could extract these blocks of information and even strip
them down to the essentials you want.The text rectangles aren't
described by their dimensions, but by the top, left, and bottom, right
corner coordinates, and units. You'd need to do the math.
