Might have different meaning in different context.

A row is 3 or more in a straight line

A column is tall and skinny

In the army, men line up in rows
A column is longer than it is wide.

Rows go across the line of "direction". Columns go in the line of direction.

Is the context a spreadsheet, a tabulation or a 2D matrix?

Rows are typically horizontal or transverse (across the short direction of a rectangle). Columns are typically vertical or longitudinal (parallel to the long direction of a rectangle). Again, those are general definitions; to get a more exact answer, we need to know the context (spreadsheet, building plan, boxes stacked on a pallet, etc.).
