My kindle book - Pagodas pomeloes and the popcorn man: impressions of China - is advertised on Amazon for sale, or free to people with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. When someone reads my book via Kindle Unlimited, do I still get royalties on the pages read?

Yes, providing they don't read it in "Page-Flip" mode, and providing the other mechanical aspects of the KU system work as advertised.

You don't get royalties. You get a bit less than half a cent per page-read, with the conditions that have been pointed out.

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ
