Not very clear from your message, but it seems you are talking about OpenGL drawing which happens in a coord system ruled by camera position, look-at, lens_angle.
In short, the default settings will give you a y-range from -/+ 0,82842712474619 (corresponding to the 45° lens_angle) and x-range equals y-range multiplied by your jit.window screen ratio.

A good way to translate you GL coord system to screen coord system in to use worldtoscreen function of the
