STL file scales down in Ultimaker Cura 4.10 (all dimm are 10 times smaller)

Hi,

 

I am using an GMAX 1.5 plus 3D printer using Cura Ultimaker 4.10.
Loading a part STL format, all the dimensions are on one tenth than are supposed to be.
Any idea what setting I have to have to bring it at scale 1/1?

I know how I can scale the part, but I want to load the part at 1/1 as default setting. 
On the previous versions smaller than 4.8 I didn't had any problem like that. 
Thank you.

    Cura works in millimeters, are you sure you didn't accidentally export at the wrong scale from your CAD program?

    You were right. Thank you. 
    I am working in mm as well.
    What happen. The new Inventor 2022 was installed and all the settings went to a different default point.
    When I exported the file into STL format, there was an option where I had to choose mm instead cm.
    This is how I fix it. 
    Thank you again.
