When using the measurement tool in the GXY visualiser - It returns "565.00 units"...(I guess units are metres...??)

Could the measurement tool return 565 m instead?
or even better have an option to set the units e.g. km?

The coordinates are independent of any scale, so yes it'll traditionally be in metres if you use 6 fig OS referencing, but I could make up my own coordinate system (or just draw my river on a 1000 x 1000 square), in which case metres wouldn't necessarily be appropriate.
The latter suggestion is therefore more universal and consequently better IMO.
