Size (width, length, and depth) runs a limited range, and there is no "standard measurement." However, keep in mind that shallower bathroom sinks are more susceptible to water splashing out of them.
Some bathroom sinks come with pre-drilled holes, and some do not. Those that do come with pre-drilled holes commonly come with one or three holes.
