**This is a serious UX issue which causes confusion among new users since what they expect is not what they get.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Make sure default in Properties panel/Scene units are set to a scale of 1 which is 1 meter(could be any other but easier to see it this way)
- Now set it to 0.01 which make the default unit in cm
- Make a new circle(or cube or whatever). Press N in viewport, go to transform section and for dimension, type: 1. Now since the default scene scale is 0.01 which is in cm, typing 1 should set the dimmension to 1 cm, but now is still 1 meter forcing the user to manually convert each time and try to guess the result they will get.
So how this should be working properly is whatever is default scale in scene should also apply to transformations.
Having a dropdown as well with some default units like km,m,cm,mm etc like in other apps will make things even more clear.
