Valve has usually said that the Steam list is ordered by raw revenue, I assume its just whatever is passing through the payment processor.

That's interesting if true, because it means a game like FTL would have to sell 5 times as many units to beat a $50 game like XCOM.
Correct.
I've seen this question asked many times on bluesnews in threads like this. I've even answered it a few times
The best answer is the one valve gives:
The top selling games on Steam by revenue for the week
http://store.steampowered.com/feeds/weeklytopsellers.xml

I suppose its theoretically possible for them to have front page top sellers be based on a different metric than the weekly though.
