Just a comment but although I agree any linear measure must be able to
convert into another and you quote cm to M and inches to miles but I would
imagine that most people if given inches would convert to Miles rather than
Kilometers.

Perhaps that's what he means (joke or not) that one is from a different
measure system than the other and Klingons just don't compare the two.
