You're right. It relates to water volume per area of capture, which
reduces back to a single linear dimension which simply is to what depth
the rain would cover if it was not absorbed and was distributed evenly.
Of course, to measure small amounts, you do not use a simple cylinder
(except in the tropics!). You use a funnel and measuring cylinder and
multiply the depth found in the measuring cylinder by the ratio of
funnel area to cylinder bore area (or the square of the diameter ratio
if both are round).
