I confirm the observed behaviour, but I won't expect a different text. If you open Format => Page Style you see measureent in mm. So for me NAB, but I add Design-Team for further input and decision.

Cannot confirm with 6.4 nor 7.1. Changing the measurement unit to mm shows this unit correctly in the sidebar.

Also in the dialog, that is shown in the screencast?
Comment 5 Heiko Tietze 2020-09-28 06:57:33 UTC
Sorry, looked only at width/height. The sidebar seems to handle margins only in cm/in, whether it's set to mm or pt. The page properties dialog shows the correct value. I'd treat this as a bug.

Had a similar issue recently in bug 135960; we should make this sidebar experimental.
