Squares are easier to fold, but all origami are not squares. Some are rectangles, and even circles. The person that created this, probably thought squares were better too.

Paper used for mathematics is often marked out in 5 mm squares as it makes it easier to align numbers when doing calculations.

Graph paper is marked out in squares to make it easier to draw the graphs as the lines making up the edges of the squares can be followed from both the X- and Y-axes to the point being plotted.
