If you want.
While most modelling software implies a specific unit, the actual 3D metric
is irrelevant. To illustrate this, a 1m sphere looks exactly the same from
1m away as a 1km sphere from 1km away. (In j3d a unit can have any
arbitrary real world equivalent (although for consistency you may like to
assign a scale to your Locale).

Your best bet is to export something from your modelling software and work
around whatever scale j3d imports it as.
