If I make an Inkscape page 50.8 mm tall and put a 96px square (path)
at its top, like the next image, it will import to OpenSCAD like the
second image. It is 20.4 units up from the x/y origin. 96 px works out
to 1 inch or 25.4 mm y offset from OpenSCAD's origin.

I made a typo. Sorry. The illustration is of a 25.4 unit Y (vertical)
offset in OpenSCAD, not 20.4 units.
