Section 5.2 says:

frame-payload-length-16 = %x0000-FFFF ; 16 bits in length

frame-payload-length-63 = %x0000000000000000-7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
                        ; 64 bits in length

frame-masking-key       = 4( %x00-FF )
                        ; present only if frame-masked is 1
                        ; 32 bits in length

It should say:

frame-payload-length-16 = %x0000-FFFF ; 16 bits in length

frame-payload-length-63 = %x0000000000000000-7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
                        ; 64 bits in length

frame-masking-key       = %x00000000-FFFFFFFF
                        ; present only if frame-masked is 1
                        ; 32 bits in length

Notes:

frame-masking-key is 32bits in length
