Since changing the units after document creation is trivial, it's hard 
to see a strong need for this.

Furthermore, in any script which performs a number of operations with 
position and size of items, the python would be more complex to allow 
for the various units which might exist in the document created.

You could always get the user's feedback with a valueDialog to choose 
the units when the document is made, with the default being the most 
likely possibility in your estimation.
