Image Properties can mess up units

Description

The legacy Image Properties command allows one to set the voxel size unit. However IJ1 maintains separate X, Y, and Z units. The Image Properties command really only changes the X unit. This can cause probems.

For instance, open Organ of Corti and see that in pixel probe X and Y both have units um. Now run Image Properties and change length unit to cm. Pixel probe now reports X in cm but Y in um.

This might be a failure of the Image Properties command to set Y and Z units to null. I will follow up with Wayne. Otherwise our MetadataHarmonizer has to get smarter.
