No, there's no way to resize a group, because some objects can't be scaled
manually (UML Class, for instance). Personally, I think that should be
changed -- non-scaling objects should 1) be ignored when scaling a group,
and 2) be fixed to allow scaling. It's silly that the LargePackage object,
for example, is always 4 centimeter tall.

You can set the scale in File/Page Setup on the right-button menu. You
can't change the units on the rulers yet, though.
