Converting decimeters to miles is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - decimeters are metric (SI) defined units while miles are US Customary / UK Imperial .

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the decimeter is officially defined as one tenth (1/10) of a meter. The decimeter is not widely used in everyday situations. Internationally it is spelled 'decimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'decimeter'. The symbol for decimeters is dm.

Customary/Imperial Unit

The mile is a measure of distance between two points used within the US Customary and British Imperial units of measure. It is customarily used to measure large geographical distances. The mile is officially defined as 5,280 feet, 1,760 yards or 1,609.344 meters. The abbreviation or for miles is 'mi' or sometimes 'm' as in miles per hour. The mile's origin stems from the Roman mile, which marked the distance the Roman army could march over 1,000 (mille) paces.
