They just FIT. No trimming required. Like a conspiracy or something...
Both are metric, 48" is only aproximate....

And that mat comes rolled in a cardboard box that breathes pretty good, so any stink has had time
to dissipate before you might open it. And it flattens without too much trouble, just roll the other way
and put back in same box for an hour. Might complain too white, expect stains and burns to show...

The workbench sometimes sales for $99, regular $109. Cheap, but a multi-hour PITA to assemble.
Need to add some diagonal brace, else it wobbles front to back. Side to side no problem, probably
cause the pegboard stiffens that. Don't expect any extra nuts bolts and some might be defective.

Huzzah for cheap stuff that works out for the 'shop!

Looks like they're both probably actually 60x120cm and the 24x48" approximation is to make the specs palatable for USA people ;)
