To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';

But I don't think this is the right way to think about this because the measurement unit is set in the Writer options. However the print dialog is the same in all applications not only Writer. There should be a LibreOffice options measurement unit setting if the print dialog shall show a specific measuring unit.
Besides that, all measurement unit settings will be ignored in the Writer options. The print dialog always shows millimeters.
Adding needsUXEval to discuss this.
Printer settings depend on the locale, in my case German = millimeter. Having one for all measurement setting as of bug 40656 could solve the problem. So make this one a duplicate?
See also bug 78916 about printer settings being different to page settings.
I support to make this bug a duplicate of bug 40656 as this cannot be solved otherwise.
