Thanks for the question, If you read the full specifications of the Calipers you will find the following paragraph:

"The caliper's measurements are based on pixels. When the units are changed to inches or centimeters the calipers use a standard conversion factor to determine the measurement. If you measure something with the calipers to be an inch, then a printout on a standard printer of that picture will also be an inch. The calipers do not take into account the size as it is
displayed on your monitor, so different resolutions will still measure one inch."

The specs page is here:

I hope that this answers your question.
