Do SVGs have any inherent px size?

Im saving some images from my illustrator file as SVGs to use as background images for a website. I know you can set the image size in px but does it have any inherent px size set in the file?

Answer

Open up your SVG file in a text editor and see for yourself!

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<svg version="1.1" id="Layer_1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px" width="60px" height="60px" viewBox="0 0 60 60" enable-background="new 0 0 60 60" xml:space="preserve">
<line fill="none" stroke="#FFFFFF" stroke-width="12" x1="1.1" y1="1.2" x2="58.8" y2="58.8"/>
</svg>
