Using this little script:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import scribus

if (scribus.haveDoc()):
    XScale, YScale = scribus.getImageScale()
    Xoff, Yoff = scribus.getImageOffset()
    scale = str(XScale) + ", " + str(YScale)
    offset = str(Xoff) + ", " + str(Yoff)
    scribus.messageBox("Scale and Offsets",scale + "\n" + offset, icon=scribus.ICON_NONE, button1 = scribus.BUTTON_OK)

    scribus.messageBox('OOPS!','You need to have a document open',scribus.ICON_NONE,button1=scribus.BUTTON_OK)

I get no difference in the values in Properties and from the script. Offsets are in points and scaling in decimals (77% = 0.77)
