Somewhere in your settings there is a feature that will allow your device to adjust the size of the content to fit your screen.
I don't remember where it is, but I will try to find it for you!

Found it!
In your internet settings there is a feature called Manual Zoom!
I think that's what your looking for!

Forget what I said about Manual Zoom!
James Watson is correct!
I found the same setting in my phone!

Thank you James!

Thanks for your reply Lindsay. Actually, my question was in the android source code where we mention the size of the display. In my device, I am using a display with 1920x1200 (10.1 inches). But in third-party apps like antutu, hardware info etc my display size is coming 7.1 inches. How can I fix this?

You may have installed the wrong version of that app!
Many apps come formatted for mobile or home PC!
Check to see if you installed the proper one.

I also found for the diagonal screen:

P.S. However, on my phone (Huawei Y6 2018) the results are not exactly what I expected,
I have no idea why.
