Description

I was getting some bad rendering using the 2.5d renderer until i realised that the height measurement is in whatever units the layer's CRS is. So for layers using degrees, the default value is ridiculously high. I think it would be better for the height units to be selectable -- eg add a unit combo next to it with choice of mm/map units/pixels.

Converting the unit may be a non-uniform operation over the rendered extent.

What do you think about some logic to estimate a good default value (e.g. average perimeter of the first 20 objects divided by 4)?
