Check Name:
This field allows you to enter a Check Name that is used to define your Check Layout to be printed.  If you only have one Check layout, then I would suggest leaving it defined as Default.  Otherwise, you can create a different one if needed.

Check Form Size:
These fields allows you to enter the actual size of your checks.  This is stored in inches and you must include the Height and Width of the actual check being printed.

Printed field layout on check: (Standard or Business Size Checks)
