The width and height settings are absolute on reopening of the (Page style) area dialog with the scale checkbox checked
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Format -> Page -> Area tab
2. Bitmap button -> Select a bitmap. Check the 'scale' checkbox
3. Press -> OK
4. Open the area tab again -> Format -> Page -> Area tab
5. Height and width shown in absolutes
Size is shown in absolutes with scale checkbox checked
The image size should be relative with the scale checkbox checked

Do you choose "custom" as style? This is the only setting, whre I can check the 'scale' checkbox.

Similar problem also seen on the following release (with the Scale tickbox greyed out):

When I inserted a background image using: Format -> Page -> Area -> Bitmap
Style = Tiled (with the Scale tickbox greyed out)
I had to adjust the following in order to make the image the correct size for what I was writing.
However, when the "Page Style" dialog is reopened, these fields instead display:

For me "1 cm" in both boxes.
This with "Tiled" but also with "Custom position/size"
In the older old version (completely different dialog/page) this was OK. So let's say it's an implementation error.
Also I would say the option "scale" should be disabled in combination with "tiled"
This is how it is in older versions (6.0.x) (see bug #122478)
Fixed in the meantime
