If you don't resize your objects, just change document units, and
export at the same resolution, the result will be the same. One pt
gives one output pixel at 72dpi; one px gives one output pixel at
90dpi. You can use any export resolution regardless of what units you
One additional convenience of the pt unit compared to px is that when
your zoom is 100%, one screen pixel corresponds to one pt (not px).
However this is probably wrong; I'm thinking about changing that, so
that 100% will be one-to-one for px, not pt. This change, if done,
will change the on-load zoom level of all old Inkscape files by the
factor of 1.25.
