The shim diameter for them all is the same, but what you are seeing is the different thickness of each available shim in that diameter. So, there is really two ways to plan for this job...save time or save money.
To save time... it is best to purchase a valve shim kit in the 7.48mm diameter size. That will give you an assortment of shim thicknesses, and about 3 in each size. The benefit is that you have an assortment to pick from since you cannot know what sizes you'll need until you can actually tear the bike apart and measure, and this saves time for the job. The negative is that you will be paying for a fairly expensive shim kit, most of which you won't use, or may not ever use.
To save money... tear the bike down and get the clearance measurements and do the math to know the exact shim size you will need for all eight shims. Then, you can specifically order each of them using the direct purchase method you show above. Maybe you are in spec and you won't need eight new shims, or any. The benefit is saving money buying up to eight specific shims instead of a whole kit, but it will cost you time...breaking down the bike, measuring, ordering, waiting for the order to arrive, then installing and putting the bike back together.
Your choice. Good luck! Oh, and to avoid false readings, use a narrow feeler gauge set.
