I too needed a display different from the default one. I wanted it to display
in picas. Could not find a solution so far. However as far as I could
understand it is related to the selection of units in the OS. GIMP refers to
the unit as 'real world' units.
Found a work around (for my purposes). In the Preferences/Image Window/Title
& Appearance made the following changes.
Changed the small 'w' and 'h' to their capitals which means
Image width/height shown in real-world units in the title bar instead of
Added '%u' to display the unit (in abbreviation).
Now, when I change the units selection in the status bar of the image window,
the dimension in that unit is displayed in the title bar. However for
resolution I have to call the Image Properties by 'Alt+Return'.
I found Section 1.12.1 'Changing the format' in the page
very useful to make these tweaks.
