Rims are only the outer hoop of the wheel. Wheels are the whole thing--rim, spokes, hubs--all put together.
In your example, you'll note that there's no mention of hubs or spokes, but there is detail on what you need to choose spokes--ERD.
Thus, it's not a misprint. They are talking about only the rim, not a built-up, ready-to-ride wheel.
EDIT: Oh, and only one, not a pair.
