Daniel Kahn Gillmor commented:
I agree with @phlerovium's note: key size or length has to do with the octets consumed on the wire or in local storage. "strength" is a rough attempt at providing an equivalence to the expected "work factor" (in log 2) needed for a brute-force attack.
But the note made me realize there is an additional weird annotation above, namely:
Generating a 256 bit EdDSA (Ed448) private key
That should probably read "Generating a 448 bit EdDSA (Ed448) private key".
