I'm unsure exactly what your after from this but that would be written as...

padding: 20px 40px;

the 1st 20px counts for both top and bottom and the 2nd counts for the left and right, this could otherwise be written like this in the order: Top, Right, Bottom, Left.

padding:20px 40px 20px 40px;

Hope this helps..
