The netmask for the route on the CIPE endpoints is 255.255.255.255. But that's correct _for the tunnel itself_. Notice that the flags for the route are probably UH, meaning "up" and "host route". How you manage routing to entire subnetworks on either side of that tunnel is a separate issue, and you can arrange such routing with any netmask you deem appropriate, using "route ... dev cipcbN" as appropriate.
