currently you can display scale units and pixel values but the simple addition of the translated length would be useful

I am not sure I understand what you are asking for. I have my units set to inch. When I drag out a ruler tool the info panel shows me in Inches what the length of the ruler is. What exactly do you want?

if i have a picture of a map, lets say from google satellite view and the time measure says 20 meters i could set the scale of the ruler accordingly to meters and measure other things on the image

currently you have to go to the track measurement panel and click a button to ad it to the log
