In this case inch Hg is wrong, because it is not an SI-unit.
Pascal (Pa) is a SI-Unit so that should be used in the base code.
Conversion from none SI-Unit can still be done in nasal code.

We should really try to use only SI-units everywhere in the base code.
If this is not the case, we should start to correct that.

Both is wrong, the SI-Unit Pascal (Pa) should be used.
