Another way is to use the string library from lua to replace μμ with mm:


function commands.interfaceddimension(str)
    if string.match(str,"\\") then
        -- dimension or macro
        str = string.gsub(str,"μμ","mm")




\scratchdimen\interfaceddimension{2mm} 2mm: \the\scratchdimen\crlf
\scratchdimen\interfaceddimension{1μμ} 1μμ: \the\scratchdimen\crlf
\scratchdimen\interfaceddimension\foo  foo: \the\scratchdimen\crlf
\scratchdimen\interfaceddimension\bar  bar: \the\scratchdimen
