Sometimes you don't want "Infinite", you want "just enough".
The actual dimensions of the Continental world type would not be given as a specific whole number, but eventually the world will be determined to be "Complete" once the following set of conditions all become true:
(a) Every biome (other than unused ones) should be generated at least once;
(b) At least one End Portal should be generated somewhere in the world;
(c) At least one Monument should be generated somewhere in the world;
(d) At least one Woodland Mansion should be generated somewhere in the world; and
(e) At least two Nether Fortresses should be generated.
Once a condition has been met, it stays "true" even if conditions might arise where it would be considered false (e.g. destruction of the Woodland Mansion within Creative Mode). Once all conditions hold true, the game would stop generating more land biomes, instead surrounding everything so far generated with more and more beach front, ocean and deep ocean.
The Nether would also stop growing at the same time. Maybe it ends in uniform lava ocean at minimal Y altitude, with open air overhead all the way up to the bedrock ceiling on all sides forever. Or maybe the "end" of the Nether transitions to solid netherrack or lava flows all around, before ending in void or a vertical bedrock wall.
