This must be referring to a canning recipe. One I have for potatoes says "2 1/2 lbs potatoes per quart jar (to 3 lbs)" which is an estimation only of the amount of potatoes you should plan on having available per quart jar being filled. There is no way to be accurate since all potatoes are slightly different in size. In recipes like this you just keeping filling jars until you run out of potatoes.

My assumption is that this recipe is translated from some old European cookbook. It is common practice in Europe to weigh the cooking ingredients.
