Default Bass drum measurements ???

When it comes to bass drum measurements what do you make of this??

Length 22"
Width 22"
Height 17 1/5"
The drum has 8 lugs
So any guess on what size it is??
Its not a 22" bass I have photos from the seller.

22"x 14". He measured a plus then stood it up to see how "high" it was.

There is a Slingerland bass drum shell currently on eBay, from seller "nutzboutdrumz". What caught my eye was the title that included the dimensions 22" x 16" x 14" I sent a quick message referencing the size. He thanked me for catching this an changed the size to 22" x 14"

With the drum resting on a head, he measures across the 20" head from the outside of the hoops and got 22x22, then he measured the "height" of the 16" shell from hoop to hoop and got 17.5", so I thing we're looking at an 8-lug 16x20 bass.
