Well - I think that works both ways - but here's a trick:   consider the context!

When someone say use an "eight ounce cup", I would imagine only a very very small portion of the population would imagine that meant that one should weigh the vessel to determine its appropriateness for use. They'd probably jump to the irrational conclusion that it must be the cup's measured volume which they need to ascertain.

And I was talking in relation to "pint" - which sort of clarifies everything to almost everyone.
