Make Map Expand Extent consistent (Km vs. Miles)

In the Report Map tool - you have the ability to select units - KM vs. Miles

You also have the ability to put a map buffer around your zoomed points - either in % or distance.

 

However - if you've selected your units as KM - the "Expand Extent" is still in Miles - see picture below.

Please can you make this consistent?

Might be nice to have a workflow configuration option that a user could pick that would change all the initial defaults in your workflow to km vs miles (without changing anything that was already configured, mind you). Like switching between horizontal/vertical, choosing to keep annotations on, etc.
