As far as I can tell, it changes
a) the basic Lift stat and
b) the equipment weights

It doesn't seem to change the range figures for either equipment or innate attacks, nor does the default character sheet give a new range table in meters. However, meters and yards are close enough that I usually just treat them as the same if the issue comes up - you'll get some errors at long ranges, but it's well within my tolerance for that sort of thing.
