Ideally, you want the dpi set to the dpi of your screen (whatever

As just a minor FYI here, I did a follow up on Inkscape's hardcoded DPI.
SVG 1.1 is based on CSS2, not CSS3, and it mentions a 90 DPI reference pixel.
Of course, Inkscape needs to have all the hardcoding removed, and to query the running
*monitors* (note the plural) for their physical size.
