What is CPU die size?

What is CPU die size? Is this the actual wafer of the chip ?
What is CPU Package size? Is this the size of the heatspreader or the whole actual CPU?

I see package size on the specifications of CPUs like in the bottom part of this one http://ark.intel.com/products/52214/Intel-Core-i7-2600K-Processor-(8M-Cache-3_40-GHz)

Do you know what is the size of a typical ARM based chip compared to an Intel core i7 in inches or centimeters? (I will use my own core i7 as a reference point)
