This is one of those "if you have to ask then it probably doesn't matter" kind of questions, but most people would probably leave it the way you have it now.

Pixels, since it's a digital medium. It shouldn't really matter too much, though, it's mainly a matter of personal preference--unless you're pulling measurements from your work to write CSS or if you're designing to fit specific dimensions, then it must be in pixels. (I suppose it could still be in inches or points, as they're both valid CSS units, em's are a whole different story, though)

If you're talking about DPI, 72 is pretty standard. Every designer I know uses it for their digital (i.e. non-print) work, and I do all of my slicing at 72 DPI. I suppose you could change it, but there isn't much reason to other than preference.

Here's a great read on DPI vs PPI and what they mean. I didn't understand it until I read this. http://www.tildefrugal.net/photo/dpi.php
