In[1]:=
PageWidth::usage

Out[1]=
PageWidth is an option for output streams and for cells which specifies how \
wide each line of text should be allowed to be.

In[2]:=
DisplayForm@Cell[BoxData["here is some text"],PageWidth\[Rule]50]

the output looks like

here is
 some
 text


meaning that, at least in the front end, the PageWidth option is not
measured in characters
