I hope this doesn't seem too obvious, but what I would do is deposit all of
these values in variables, and \message the variables to the log file so
I could read them later on out of the log file.
In fact, that is just I do with most such variables, except for "absolutes"
such as crop dimensions and page dimensions, which go into comments at
the head of
the file. I am often surprised by how often my somewhat leaky memory
to pop to the top of the source file to retrieve such values.
