Glove sizing measurements...Confused

Hi, I was just browsing the internet for new gloves and I am in a state of confusion. I want Dakine Bronco Gloves and I was looking at their sizing chart. The part I got confused is, the measurements. According to the Dakine Site , Size L is 21.5 to 24cm, in which 24 cm is just too unbelievable of a human hand. I have a tape measure and I am pretty sure it measures in centimeters. I measured my hand and I only had 8.5centimeters which is ridiculous. I noticed that on the left side of the measurement table (website) which measures in inches, measurement numbers matches correctly with my 8.5 hand in WHICH I measured with a centimeter measure tape. I don't get it...I think I am lacking some basic measuring knowledge here or maybe my measure tape measures in inches...but my measure tape says 2 meters so it has to be a centimeter tape.
Sorry for my stupidity

it's circumference around the widest part of your hand, and the length of your hand from your wrist to the tip of your middle finger.

(the sizing chart also says circumference)
