Let me start by saying I am an American and it's all inches, feet, gallons and pounds here.

Cura can open a model drawn in inches just fine.  Open the file, select the model then select the scale tool and scale it to 2540%.  If you bring in a 25mm cube calibration block you can scale it to 1.016 and make it an inch.  After that the size doesn't really come into play since there isn't any way in Cura to actually measure anything any way.  If you find it easier you can scale the model before you export it from Fusion.  I have no idea if that's what the Fusion plug-in does (I'm still in Mechanical Desktop) but that would seem to be an easy way to do it as well.
