After 0.8.0 Size of graphical tile is not necessarily same as 1 coordinate unit or "tile"

I think, A tile can refer to coordinate unit of the map or graphical tile of the map. The difference is graphical tile sidelength can vary from 1 to 8 tiles (even 16 tiles?) (after release of 0.8.0) The smallest graphical tile on world-map is 32x32 pixels and it is equal to area of 1x1 in coodinate system.
