This is a good thing. The sooner we can get people to use metric more generally the better. I know my weight (mass for pedants) in kilogrammes, height in centimetres. I know portions in grammes, volumes in litres.
It will be tricky to change miles to kilometres as lot's of road signs but not impossible. (Though one downside would be dropping speeds to nearest 5 or 10 km/h not raising them. 50mph easily -> 80km/h. 70mph is 112km/h so would become 110km/h not 115 or 120km/h, 60mph -> 96km/h so would become 95 or even 90km/h.)
