JFTR - the mentioned feature request (including duplicates):
Bug #168164 "font sizes specified in pixels instead of points"
The issue has been asked about repeatedly in the InkscapeForum (less so
on #inkscape, afaict). From some of the support questions I have come
across I suspect that many users aren't even aware that Inkscape's font
sizes are specified in 'px' instead of the more commonly used (and
expected) 'pt' units.
