How can I set custom units in Photoshop?

For example I want to see all distances in dp, where

100.00dp = 150.00px

I've tried to set it in Edit -> Preferences -> Unit & Rulers, but there I could set only predefined units.

I'm not aware that you can, however you could always set a grid in the preferences to 150px with 10 subdivisions.

Then turn your grid on with CTRL or CMD + '
