Keeping this in consideration, is it width by length or length by width?

Dimensions are expressed as width by length by height or depth in three-dimensional space.

Also, is width the same as height? Length is how long something is, breadth is how broad something is, width is how wide something is, height is how high something is, and depth is how deep something is. Although they may all sometimes be used interchangeably, they are usually used as in my first paragraph example.

Just so, what comes first length or width or height?

It needs to be written Length X Width X Height. That is standard for measurements. It makes no difference in the order you have them listed.
