Units setup

Add an option to change the display unit.
Some artists prefer to work in centimeters rather meters.

For example, it can be confusing to set the height map often with small absolute values between 0 and 10 centimeters with a value in meters in the editor.

    Agreed that this should be GUI display units only, not the actual values serialized into the asset files. That way leads to madness in a team of artists with individual preferences.

    Should not be an option to change the unit globally but rather a way to specify a value in whatever unit you want like in Maya.

    10 cm
    1 m

    and the field take the unit you provide.

    Internally all is m anyway, it is just GUI.
