Yes, you are using it correctly. Either multiply by the width to get the length, or divide the length by it to get the width. Depending on which one you’d want. The 30”x20” comes out to a 1.5 ratio. I’d say that’s not an issue at all. Ultimately the only thing that matters is that you’re happy with the way it looks, regardless of the ratio. It’s one of those “They say…” things, where no one really knows the “they” that say…

For the height, I made my coffee table be about the same height as the top of the cushions on my couch, as it seemed the most natural height for it. That’s around 18” to the table top for me. I believe (with out having it to measure) that I ended up with 35” x 21”

EDIT: I see now that a lot of what I stated here is an echo of what Moron said, and I agree with their comments.
