The "checkerboard pattern" is not part of the actual image data, but instead
GIMP's way of informing you that that region of the image is transparent and
there's nothing below it (note that the size of the checkerboard doesn't change
as you zoom in and out).
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
