Only if pixels are square which they are not in PAL and NTSC.

According to this, PAL uses a 1.09 ratio while NTSC uses 0.91 ratio.
This means that PAL 320x256 corresponds to a 1:0.734 ratio (or 16:11.7) while NTSC 320x200 is 1:0.687 (or 16:11).

Thus, the physical ratio is not very different between PAL and NTSC CRT televisions.
