In short, these are the standard sizes used on youtube today. YouTube currently accepts up to 8K videos, but there aren’t many devices that support it yet. If you post your videos in 1080p or 4K it will already be excellent, you will be able to reach most devices.
Each device currently has a size, but in the case of youtube the videos are mostly 16:9 aspect ratio. You can publish in different formats, like 4:3 for example, but the tendency is to have black borders when users watch on the computer. On mobile devices it is also recommended to use the 9:16 aspect ratio, is that the entire screen in portrait format.
