I'd say there's no 100% reliable cross-platform solution and Qt can't do
anything about it — the screen itself may return incorrect information
about its physical size, OS may somehow misinterpret that information or
simply fake it by reversing the calculations (i.e. calculate physical
size by multiplying resolution and some predefined DPI value), etc..
