    Whatever the publisher tells the printer. 

    Manuscripts are submitted to publishers using the requirements listed in the submissions guidelines.  Then if it's accepted the publisher talks to the marketing department who decides if the book is best put out as a hardcover,  paperback or tradeback.  Margins for each type are standardized, so it's the printer who ends up formatting it for printing.

    I believe it's 8 rods.
