The term 'Nano' tank can be a bit of a misnomer really, some aquarist consider anything below 100l / 25 gals US to be a nano tank. Whilst folks like me consider anything below 40l / 10 gals US to be a nano tank.
However, there is some that call anything below 20l / 5 gals US as a Pico or Micro Nano tank just to confuse you more
But you must bear in mind, nano tanks, in general, is not really for the new fishkeeper as keeping water parameters stable in such a small volume of water can be that much more tricky to upkeep. So a nano tank is not suitable for everyone.
This is why I do not like LFS and Pet Stores selling these so called 'starter tanks' aimed at children or new beginners to the hobby with tanks of much less than 40 litres / 10 gals US (with of course a packaging picture of several goldfish swimming 'happily' in this tank) and with little or poor advice on how to set these up. A recipe for disaster imho.
There is of course more arguments about nano v large tanks than you can shake a stick at and personally, its really is up to the aquarist to be aware of what they can and cannot do with their sized tanks, with plenty of research and advice of course
I am almost going off into a rant here so I'd better stop there
