I have no idea how inch came in the picture for defining size for design attributes (must be someone who measured his weener often) but in the 2010 world I believe pixels or percentage are more common size to define width/height of objects.
 
Can we have this also in Designer please?

This is taken from the operating system settings. I should "Metric (centimeters), and I like. Pixels are topical for web-design, but there it can be controlled using HTML/CSS.

EM and Percentage are a better fit. But with XPages you get this in the CSS, so it may be a non-issue.

Table cells in inches make a lot of sense...particularly as the Ruler which one can display, is in inches...not pixels. Haven't seen to many percentage or pixel based rulers. Also, margins are, have been, and will remain for a while as a linear measurement in inches, as is the paper that defines them. Ever bought printer paper in pixels? :)

So, it depends upon what one is doing, as to the measurement scale of preference. A total replacement throughout seems a bit too strong of an action.

some people run the metric system { Link }

@4 That's addressed via the Regional Settings preference in the Notes client...imperial or metric is just a semantic really.

I referred specifically to Inches so as to address the screen shot you provided...which displays inches. But I appreciate the link.

unless to complicated.. why not go for a "select measurements"? You might not want to use inches/cm even if creating tables for the notes client?
