Here's another for you in case you didn't find it:

With my file setup using World Machine Units for Dimensionality, with Max Elevation of 1.0 and Use Meters unchecked, when using a file input for a heightmap and adjusting the Altitude Scaling by selecting Specific Range gives range values in meters and returns user input as meters. So if I desire half height by typing in 0.5 it returns 0.50m and squishing the input heightfield visibly flat. The other drop-down list options, Natural File Elevations and Full Range both correctly display the normalized 0-1 units.
