The number on a Le Creuset oven/pot/pan refers to the diameter in centimeters (cm).  Here is a list of the corresponding capacities, according to Le Creuset.  There is some rounding.  You'll notice that capacity cannot be determined by diameter alone, as diameters are 2 dimensional. Capacity varies based on the depth/shape.  The Soup/Marmite looks like an oven, but is shaped like a bowl and only comes in the 22 size.  A 22 round oven is 3.5 qt, while the soup is only 2.75 qt.  This list is not all-inclusive.  Update: The soup pot now comes in 4.25 qt and 7.5 qt, as well.
