There is no mechanism in live to select the units which will be displayed in a given output format (the actual size is stored in the XMM, but not the preference of how to display that size).

This article explains how to change them for the web applet:

For PDF, there is a right-click menu to change the units. To change the default, use Strata Live 3D PDF, and choose Edit > Advanced > Runtime JavaScript
Find the line that says:
var MEASUREMENT_UNIT = "inch"; // another valid value is "centimeter";
and change it to say:
var MEASUREMENT_UNIT = "centimeter"; // another valid value is "centimeter";
Save and follow the prompts from there.
