Oscar -- check some of the manufacturers' sites. The better ones usually include a pictograph of a frame to render their statistics unambiguous.
I'm with Mike that the center of the crank spindle is the best starting reference point. Wheelbase/chainstay length can be tricky with horizontal dropouts; I would prefer to see it expressed as a useful range (e.g. "WB = 0.97-1.01m, for nominal 700Cx23mm tyres").
