This is very much still alive and kicking. It's a long-standing request, too... steps to verify:

1) new document
2) set document default units to anything other than px (e.g. 'cm'), and set up a 1x1cm grid
3) draw a rectangle of 3x3cm (note the size is measured in 'cm' in the status bar)
4) inspect the XML: (either using the built-in xml editor, or by saving out an svg file)
  --- the width and height are reported as 106.2991 (using default px units)
