Here in the US, the ruler that I have available is marked with inches 
and centimeters.  Are you saying that rulers in the rest of the world 
are no longer marked with centimeters?  If they are not marked with 
centimeters, then what are they marked with?  A ruler marked with 
millimeters or meters would not be so convenient.

It seems natural that centimeters was used since it is easiest to 
measure the width and height of a computer screen or page-sized object 
(e.g. sheet of paper) in centimeters rather than in meters or 
millimeters.
