It could be 11/16.

Sizing a cleat to fit the line seems backwards to me. Line is temporary, cleats are permanent. Install the cleats then buy line to fit.

As a practical matter smaller line fits a larger cleat better than the other way around so I would install the larger cleat unless I had a good reason not to.
