try this, e.g.

const INCHES_PER_MILIMETER : Real  = 0.04;

....

var PixX, PixY : integer;
    PixPerMMX, PixPerMMY : real;
    AspectRatio : real;

PixX := GetDeviceCaps({Device Context}, LOGPIXELSX);
PixY := GetDeviceCaps({Device Context}, LOGPIXELSY);

PixMMX := INCHES_PER_MILIMETER * PixX;
PixMMY := INCHES_PER_MILIMETER  * PixY;

AspectRatio := PixMMY/PixMMX;
....


{Device Context} e.g. Printer.Handle

From Delphi help :

The GetDeviceCaps function retrieves device-specific information about a specified device.

int GetDeviceCaps(

    HDC  hdc,      // device-context handle
    int  nIndex       // index of capability to query  
   );

hdc

Identifies the device context.

nIndex

Specifies the item to return. This parameter can be one of the following values: I recommend you should look at these!!!!
