As they wish. I'd translate them. They're probably used as "put here
your GEOMETRY" when you pass command-line arguments. There's no harm
in translating them.
If you ever used a command line program, you'll see that's usually the
case (try "gnome-terminal --help" or "ls --help" and watch for FILE,
OPTION, SIZE, GEOMETRY,...).
If there are no comments (unless missing by accident), we should
assume the messages are not tricky and just translate them.
