Maybe it is, but sometimes it is useful: for instance, when my printer
used zig-zag sprocket-feed paper rather than sheet paper, I used to
order paper 21cm wide by 11" deep.
Imperial measures are rather confusing, in general, yet there are still
people using them. One inch is 25.4 mm, one foot is twelve inches, one
yard is three feet, one fathom is two yards, one statute mile is 1760
W3C specifications explicitly allow using any units together with any
other units (as e.g. the four margins of a
block): you could even
mix pixels with millimeters, or points with percents... Not that it
would necessarily be very useful.
Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has
