Thanks for your answers.

I'm a beginner with map and geolocalization tools, so there are many 
things I still don't know.

How can you do that ? Is there a method in the code to default to Mercator ?

Where can you find tiled bitmaps from OSM on the Internet ? Or OSM files 
must be transformed to tiled bitmaps with Mapnik first ?

Now if I have tiled bitmaps, how can I use them in Marble library being 
offline ?
