This question already has an answer here:

Why would a cuboid with seams as shown unwrap as a cube? I eventually found one tutorial example of a cuboid rather than a cube being unwrapped. Its result as illustrated in the article was as expected but in 20 attempts I could only reproduce it once. All the other attempts with different seams, different unwraps, renders etc produced a cube's unwrap.

    $\begingroup$ My guess is that you scaled a cube to a cuboid in object mode without applying the scale. Try hitting Ctrl A followed by S in object mode, and see if that helps. $\endgroup$ – Duane Dibbley Feb 19 '17 at 22:30

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, thank you, I had not applied the scale. Now into hours of diversion to understand another accidentally discovered fundamental. $\endgroup$ – ragim_w Feb 20 '17 at 7:28
