How can avchd be 640 by 480?

I captured some footage to my computer and it shows as AVCHD on the hard drive where it's saved. If I click properties, however, it shows 640 x 480?

AVCHD is hdef right? So then why isn't it 1480 by 1040?

When loaded on the timeline, it does not fill the window but has black edges on all sides.

I took a screen shot of it and it saves it as jpg which as I understand is lower quality?

I plan to make it fit the screen preview so there are no black edges.

I am guess the resolution will not be good when viewed?
