Inconsistent Margin Dimensions

It's been 50+ years since I had to go through the mental gymnastics of converting antiquated imperial measurements into the international metric system.

Version: (x64)
Build ID: f4ca1573fcf445164c068c1046ab5d084e1b005f
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.1; UI Render: default; 
Locale: en-AU (en_AU); Calc: group

Set locale units of measure to metric.
Open a Writer document and the new sidebar "Page" panel/deck.
By default my page size appears as A4 (21 x29.7 cm)
The margins selection list shows 3 imperial dimensions and some indeterminate dimension names.

1) Recognize the user's locale and offer metric or imperial margin dimensions accordingly.
2) Give some definitive numeric meaning to dimension names such as "Narrow, Wide, etc." Better still, replace them with the actual dimensions that will be applied.
