I tried to find out from my contact at LSI what I s the pages per inch for
5.5 x 8.5 in or 216 x 140 mm (Demy 8vo) Perfect Bound on White 152 pages but
she said she had no idea. Do you know where I can find this out so I can use
John Culleton cover generator?

Interesting thought. Given a remote host for the e-book that belongs 
to someone else I am not sure if that would be feasible. There has 
to be an external program somewhere to do the calcs and return them
to another page. AFAIK pdf does not encapsulate javascript or perl 
or php. 

In the e-Book the addy of the calculator site is a clickable URL.  
That is a one-way street it is true but the e-book could remain on 
screen while the data is printed out.  As a practical matter you 
want a print out anyhow.
