I think there is a little confusion here on how this article translates. From the math, I get the feeling that there is an assumption that the clamping pressure of one clamp is only providing force for one square inch. The clamp is providing pressure across the whole board but the concentration of pressure is within a smaller radius. Keep in mind that sometimes too much pressure causes failed glue-ups. Some people exert so much force that the joint is starved for glue.
