One inch-pound is the amount of torque produced by a force of one pound placed one inch away from the fulcrum, where the measurement is taken. One foot-pound is the amount of torque produced by one pound of force placed one foot away from the fulcrum. Since there are 12 inches in a foot, one foot-pound equals twelve inch-pounds. Remember, 12 inch-pounds can equal twelve pounds one inch from the fulcrum or one pound twelve inches (one foot) from the fulcrum.

Because this is the conversion factor for area, not linear distance. A square centimeter has 10 x 10 mm sides, so the conversion factor should be 100.
