Even 3 has its multiples. I think most would agree that inches are 
probably the least useful units to use, for a variety of reasons. I use 
points most of the time, for the precision. If I need to, I convert 
temporarily to inches or whatever (bottom left corner of the window).

Fluid design using drawing techniques does indeed work well with 
Scribus. You may just want to trim the decimals when it makes sense.
