Those should be in some general KOffice handbook section or so already; when 
importing and exporting your document will be/remains a true Krita documents; 
when saving as/open Krita will know you have a .png and so on. Or at least, 
that's David Faure's explanation. I suspect it's only true of export. I'd 
like to get rid of the distinction myself.

When we have proper image resolution, it will show the image at the correct
size in inches, based on the resolution of your image and the resolution of
your display.

These two options are only used with the tentative watercolor simulation. 
Don't worry about them; when we get the watercolor simulation done, these
items will be gone from the menu.

Thanks. One thing: you might want to get hold of an original Photoshop manual 
(version doesn't matter much) or some similar lecture. That shows the kind of 
prose our target audience will expect, and besides, will give you the 
background to write about Krita.
