Public bug reported:

This is less a bug and more a usability suggestion. I noticed with
Inkscape 0.92, display and measurement units default to mm instead of
pixels. Previous versions defaulted to pixels, if I remember right. I
rarely use mm in my work, so I have to change this every time. There is
no way that I know to change the default document properties.

Each time a new Inkscape document is opened, I have to select the
properties required for the project. If I create multiple documents that
require the same properties, I still have to go through the same
selection process each time. It would save time if I could create a
document property profile to save for future use. If this were
implemented, I could then open the document properties box, select the
profile and click apply. This would improve workflow by saving extra
clicks to setup a document.

Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Inkscape 0.92.2+68~ubuntu16.04.1

I expected the default units to be pixels. Instead they were mm. This
caused unexpected dimensions in my drawing until I realized the default
units were different in Inkscape 0.92 from previous versions. There is
currently no way that I know to change the default document properties.
