Mils aren't metric...mils are a way to measure angles and they're any unit of measure you want. It's a base 10 system. They're a smaller unit of measure than degrees to measure angles. 6400 mils in a circle (approx).
1 mil can be 1" @ 100", 2" @ 200, etc. It can be 1 yard at 100, 5 yards at 500.
Mils get associate with metric because metric is also a base 10 number system and they're easily adapted to one another.
