In the German Writer of Libre Office 220.127.116.11 (x64) (and AOO 4.1.5 too) with units "cm" I have got numbers with "inch" in the dialogue Find & Replace ->Format->Indent. Thats buggy.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.(Only Writer in German!) Make a new writer document.
2. Write a little text with Liberation Serif 12.
3. Mark one sentence
4. Format→Paragraph→Indent→Before text: 1 cm (This shows us, that the units are „cm“)
5. Now Find & Replace→Liberation Serif→Indent -> and increase this (only one step is enough):
You get inch
You get cm
User Profile Reset: No
If the units are cm (as in Germany is plausible and usually), than the indent in the search & file dialog can be only cm
On Win10 with LO 6.3.1 + French UI (where I expect too "cm" and not "''" corresponding to inches), I could reproduce this.
I noticed that if I go to Format/paragraph, Indents & Spacing tab, there's "cm".
In addition, if I try to reproduce again the bug, without relaunching LO, I don't reproduce it !!
If I relaunch LO and just try to reproduce the bug, it appears again.
So it seems that Format/paragraph, Indents & Spacing tab calls a function which retrieves some localization config and the config is kept until we exit LO.
I can't reproduce it in
Versión: 18.104.22.168 (x86)

Ok, I can reproduce it if I go directly to Search and Replace - Format, but not if I go to Format - Paragraph first...

A bit like https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=127744#c1 :-)
I've had this issue for a long time (I reported it but cannot find now - I must have had to recreate my id)
Basically (in Writer for me), Writer options - General - is set to centimetres, but shape properties (eg Line...) usually show values in inches. Repeating setting the options gives no improvement in the dialogues.
I say 'usually' because sometimes it randomly changes to centimetres mode, as it has just done this moment. It will in short course generally revert back to its usual inches in defiance of the option settings (and my windows settings are all for the UK), so it's not even consistent with the problem.
This is a very problematic issue for anyone dealing with sizes.
This has been going on since at least 6.3.?1 or 2-ish days, and is occurring on the latest beta:-
