Metric/imperial units changing randomly

Data format for historical data seems to be changing randomly.
I am retrieving data via queries like this: http://www.wunderground.com/history/a...

It works fine, however sometimes I get data in metric system, sometime in inches/etc
Is there a way to specify I would like to use metric system ?

If you use the API history call, you get both metric and imperial data returns.

There are several good reasons I dont want to use API for history (one call = one day or at least I cannot figure out how to get several days in one call)

You're correct, one call = one day.

The site isn't really intended for pulling data -- just end-users browsing history data. The API would be the intended platform if you need to ingest data.
