There is currently no proper way to switch a project from PAL to NTSC. The 
Project->Configure Project dialog is not really working for the moment.

You can tell if your project file is PAL or NTSC by looking at what is said on 
the right side of Kdenlive's status bar.

The other way is to open the .kdenlive project file in a text editor, and look 
at the begining of it.

For a PAL project, you should see something like:

<properties videoprofile="" metadata="" projectratio="1.09259" 
timeline_position="1587" projectfolder="/home/xxx" projectvideoformat="0" 
projectfps="25" projectheight="576" outpoint="0" projectwidth="720" 
inpoint="0" />

For an NTSC project:

<properties videoprofile="" metadata="" projectratio="0.909091" 
timeline_position="0" projectfolder="/home/xxx" projectvideoformat="1" 
projectfps="29.97" projectheight="480" outpoint="0" projectwidth="720" 
inpoint="0" />

You can try to edit the settings if you think they are wrong for your project
