A is a p x q matrix, so regarded as a function,
A maps R^q to R^p.
Thus,
x is in R^q
not in R^p as you specified, and
Ax is in R^p
Also, since A is columnwise orthonormal, it follows that p >= q.
As far as norm comparison, since A is orthonormal,
Ax = x
where the norms are the usual Euclidean norms in R^p and R^q, respectively.
