References with detailed explanation:

The term "nibble" or "nyble" originated in the 17th century with Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, a German philosopher, mathematician and scientist. He introduced the concept of the binary number system in his "Explication de l'Arithmetique Binaire" (1703) in which he defined a "nyble" as a unit of binary information. This type of binary representation had been previously used in ancient Chinese divination, where the I Ching (Book of Changes) contained a system of 64 hexagrams which could be interpreted with the help of a binary system.

I could not find a direct association with size other than the ARM manual, but I am sure it is there.
