Default building to scale

Hello,

i have to build a table to scale in feet and inches in
Maya. Wondering how how do i use maya scale system
and if it uses feet or inches.
For example when i drop a cube into the scene, by default the
cube is set to 1 scale x,y, z. what form of measurement does
maya normaly use and can it use feet and inches.

thank you
