The 8mm is the measured smoothing level, not the level you applied. Real
data have endogenous smoothness that adds to the smoothness you applied
to give you a final level of smoothness that is greater than both.

The one that is just "area" is the area of the white surface. I think
there is a option called "area.pial". In general we like to use the
area of the white surface because that will be independent of changes in
