You asked this question in the general, nationwide Ask Your Question area - you would need to contact specific Ceramic Tile contractors in your area (presumably well-rated and reviewed ones from Search the List) to ask if they will install that type tile - some will, many will not because of the numerous instances of breakage of the longer strip tiles and because most homeowners do not want to go to expense of paying for proper subflooring prep and scratch coat to put this product down without significant risk of breakage.

My personal recommendation - and bear in mind this comes from the son of a ceramic tile contractor - if you want the look of hardwood, go with hardwood or a hardwood look-alike laminate - why have the cleaning hassle of grout joints if what you want is wood appearance - UNLESS this is for a wet area like kitchen, laundry room, mudroom, bathroom - in which case the waterproof characteristics and wet cleanability of tile can easily outweigh the grout joint maintenance hassles.
