Screen objects absolute size

I have a standalone that I want to make a good effort to make standard  the absolute size of objects on screen.  

Thus, a graphic 4 inches by 4 inches on one would be close to that on all others.  I recall that messing with screen resolution is deprecated, which means that even assuming it is possible to obtain the properties of the physical screen, I would have to think about dynamically scaling objects.

Is this one of those things that sounds as though it should be easy but isn't?

Best Wishes,
