Yeah, those are the standard, professional measurements, although you will generally find a great bit of disparity between pitches.

Wait, what's the measurements of a standard field. I tried to walk across it and it seemed like around 60m or so. Does anyone know exactly how much it is?

There isn't really a "standard field" as long as they fall under those specifics. In my experience most of the high school fields I've played on are about 60 -70 yards, and 100- 120 yards

This is a little bit off topic but what is the purpose of those half circles at the top of the 18 yard box? I never understood what purpose they served.

its to give the player taking a penalty kick the 10 yards that he would normally receive had the foul taken place outside of the box. At least thats what i believe to be true.
