factor :

The unit's factor (how many units are in one inch).

digits :

Trying to change the deletion_flag of a built-in unit will be silently ignored.

                                                         GimpUnit unit);

The format string supports the following percent expansions:

% f Factor (how many units make up an inch)
% y Symbol (e.g. "''" for GIMP_UNIT_INCH)
% a Abbreviation
% s Singular
% p Plural
%% Literal percent
