An Altoids box: a credit card just about fits in one. A power supply and LiPo battery should fit in the lid. The box should also make a great heat shield (probably needed for the PSU and the battery. We are told the Raspi runs real cool.)
For the Model B of the Raspi, you will need to carve the lid a bit to be able to use the RJ45 jack and the top USB port. ...

X and Y are no use as they will change. Z is probably the same on the next board.
Height is ~22 mm. That is from the top of the stacked USB to the bottom of the SD-card.
Assuming the ~22mm height is for Model B ("stacked USB"), we really do need to carve up the Altoids' lid a bit, hopefully only on the edges. ( I have just verified that a standard Altoids box is 20mm high with lid closed.)
If no cans get in the way, a Model A might still fit inside an Altoids box.
