Conversions of units of length are not very common in recipes, mainly being seen in cake making with the size of the tin that the mixture should fill being given in inches (in) or centimetres (cm). For instance a recipe may specify a 10" baking tin or a 20cm circular cake tin. Sometimes you will see a layer of an ingredient specified as 5mm or ¼in which will need to be converted. Below is a converter for inches to centimetres and centimetres to inches and further down the page is a converter for inches to millimetres and millimetres to inches.
