What are you trying to measure? Port volume or something else?
You can measure port volumes from two intake ports, one straight port and one hook port if this is what you are after.

The head you posted the picture of is a peanut port head....Notice how the intake ports are considerably smaller than the standard oval port gasket outline imprint around the port.

Ok, then no doubt they are peanut ports.

I found a page where it shows measurements of small port size verses large port size. My ports were not measuring up to what a peanut port would measure in this info.

Didn't wanna take the Internet info and run with it. Claimed small ports would be 1 9/16 x 1 7/16 and didn't know if that was inside the port or out side of port on the surface.

Appreciate clearing that up guys.
