Oops.

The units ‘dpi’ (not ‘dpin’), ‘dpcm’ and ‘dppx’ have been added to the ED of css3-values. That doesn’t make them a better idea at all. They’re reciprocals of units that already exist, but not there are not reciprocals for all these (absolute) units – and nobody wants them either.

There are two ways this could be dealt with better:

1. calc(1/1in), calc(1/1cm), calc(1/1px) …
2. Alter the applicable properties and use lengths instead.
