A favicon is usually a tiny pixel icon that is displayed near every website you ever visit. Starting from the size of 16×16 pixels and going more prominent, it mainly represents your branding, and it is a huge helper when your visitor has multiple tabs open in their browsers. To not get lost, it is recommended to have it as readable as possible (usually one letter or two).
Favicons are displayed in different sizes, but the most common are 16x16, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64, and 128x128. Nowadays, many browsers can read image files instead of .ico, so the favicon size is created independently - no need to think about dimensions, just making it look good.
Most of the Internet browsers will be happy to have PNG, JPG, and GIF images as your favicons. Although, there are a lot of Internet users who do not upgrade their browser versions, and, for example, Internet Explorer will not render image files as it requires ICO format.
