What's the actual height of the West Tower including the helipad? I thought it was 438m, not 440m.

Check this:

helipad aint a structural element of the building, so the height of the building including helipad would be higher than the structural height, as I think it.

T/O means the building has reached it's final overall height. The helipad counts towards that height, so it is not officially topped-out.
