Sorry, but that's bullshit. The only cross-platform compatible unit is the pixel. All Matlab GUI's I've written up to now, and BTW it are many, exclusively use pixel and nothing else, and they look equal on Linux, Windows, and Mac. The window size in any unit of length is of course different depending on the screen resolution but hey, that's why I have a 2560x1600 screen: more information visible due to less overlapping windows.
