Doesn't surprise me much (althought it would be better if is more
explicitly expressed in the docs, just in case): fonts support points
because is frequently used to measure fonts, so QFont supports font sizes
in points. But margins and paddings don't support it because QLayout and
company don't support it.

I would stick to the "NNunit" notation, not "NN unit". I think only the
former is the way to express it in CSS, so Qt's stylesheets follow it. If
it works for margins is because only pixels are supported.
