that's the height of the sides of the violin, but not including the top plate and bottom plate.

Are you talking about the top piece of wood and the bottom piece....so if I am supposed to give that measurement...would it be the height taken in the side?

The ribs are the vertical part of the sides of the violin that separate the top of the fiddle (with the F holes) from the bottom of the fiddle. Whether they want the measurement of the ribs only or the thickness of the violin (including the top and back) I can't say. You'd have to ask them that.  Here are the parts of a fiddle.
