I admit, it is possible to do it that way, but it´s not the easiest way to go.
It´s much easier to convert to pixels or whatever after calculating everything you need. This way you can just apply physics in an easier way (newton and others have thought of the formulas already ;-) ), the only thing you need to do is to apply these formulas. Otherwise you would have to come up with new measuring units (pixels per second) for velocity, pixels per second per second for acceleration, and kg.pixels.s^-2 for force. So with all these new units, how would you call them? Force is easy (call it after yourself .. newton did! :-)), but for the others you''ll have to come up with other names to keep things clear.
