No, we're not covered. `C-h f x-display-pixel-width':

 On "multi-monitor" setups this refers to the pixel width for all
 physical monitors associated with DISPLAY.  To get information for
 each physical monitor, use 'display-monitor-attributes-list'.

IOW, use `display-monitor-attributes-list'.

I think you're missing the point of this
request.  Yes, all such info is available
from `display-monitor-attributes-list'.
The point is to have specific functions
that provide it directly.

`current-monitor-size' is a convenience function.
Obviously you can get the info it provides by
digging it out of `display-monitor-attributes-list'
(or `frame-monitor-attributes', which just calls

`current-monitor-size' gives you directly,
au choix, the geometry or workarea size.
