    Yes, this isn't great. It never used to be like this, and then Illustrator decided to change this behaviour. Surely the presets can have whatever they like in their document, but when you make a NEW one based on that preset, it should translate the internal document units to your preferences value, e.g.
    Letter 612pt x 792 pt => open as new => Letter 8.5" x 11"
    A4 841.89pt x 595.27pt (wtf?) => open as new => A4 210mm x 297mm

    Depending on if you are setup as mm or inches.
    PS. USA is the only metric hold-out for consumers - most of the industries have already switched or have accelerated their switch to metric after the Hubble Space Telescope metric/imperial disaster for NASA. LOL!
