Sorry for the beginner's question, but I need to mix length units and I do not know how...

i.e. I would like to say

        const VNSpindleBearingOD is string     = "SpindleBearingOD";
        const SpindleBearingOD      is number = 3.15; // this value is in inch
        const VNSpindleBearingOD is string     = "SpindleBearingID";
        const SpindleBearingID       is number  = 80; // This value is in mm
        verifyVariableName (VNSpindleBearingOD);
        setVariable(context, VNBearingSpindleOD, SpindleBearingOD); // By default my project is in inch so this will be OK

        verifyVariableName (VNSpindleBearingID);
        setVariable(context, VNBearingSpindleID, SpindleBearingID); // !!!>>> But this will be interpreted as inch, instead of mm

Any help will be greatly appreciated
