AFAIK there are no standard or regulation for this and it will probably depend on context.

I think that in normal condition it would be the max area when beating.

So for a standard boat from a manufacturer it could be one of two
1) Designed max sail Area
2) Max area with standard wardrobe

For a used boat it could be max area with curent wardrobe
