How do I reconcile the statement in the SVG CR, section 7.10, "Units":

"A px unit and a user unit are defined to be equivalent in SVG."

with the statement, below it, that

"...use of px units ... can cause inconsistent visual results on different 
viewing environments since the size of '1px' may map to a different number 
of user units on different systems..."

Is a 'user unit' a px, or ain't it? what am I missing?
