Dual channel means something else, but none the less your ram is running at the correct frequency.

Dual channel means two sticks of ram that are running in paired slots. Quad channel like on the X79 platform will be four sticks.

You were close. It's because of Double Data Rate. It's operating on the rise AND fall of the clock so that's where the 2x multi comes in.

Correct - CPU-Z will give you the actual clock speed, not the DDR equivalent, or if you prefer the FSB (Front Side Bus) to DRAM ratio, and the actual memory timings that are currently set within the BIOS.
