Concrete Masonry Units (CMU), or Concrete Blocks, come in a variety of sizes.  CMUs are identified by their depth - i.e. the thickness of the wall they create.  For instance, a 6" CMU is nominally 6" deep.  As with brick, CMUs have actual dimensions and nominal dimensions.  The nominal dimension of a CMU is the actual dimension plus the width of the mortar joint.  Typical CMU mortar joints are 3/8".  The nominal dimension works within the 4" grid that other construction materials follow.
