would that be the multiplier?

Yes, For every tip is 0.04" (1.016mm) for a system expecting 0.01" (0.254mm) so multiple *4, note the mm converson is not exactly 1mm but probably well within design spec. Does your system have an option to set a 1mm gauge?

Yes it is.  However the purpose of the metric system is to keep things in even multiples of 10, other fractions confuse the matter, and 0.1mm (100Ám or 0.004") is getting a little impractical to measure with a regular tipping rain gauge, so therefore you're stuck with one millimeter.
