CKEditor - this is a java version. HTML created:

In all cases, the editor privileges semantics over formatting, so the end results will never look like the original. CKEditor makes it best to translate the information send from Word through the clipboard and many times it needs to come to an agreement. In those cases we prioritize semantics instead of formatting.

You are pasting from desktop application into browser based one. If you want your result look as much as the original you would need to adjust css for that e.g. these big lines are paragraph which get default margins from browser. You can style your paragraphs in contants.css file.
As for font-size; Browser sees font-size:12.0pt;font-family: Arial,sans-serif and since such font is available in editor it's used.
