The gauge control uses relative measurements for displaying scales inside the container like the RadHorizontalLinearGuage. You can specify the RelativeX, RelativeY, RelativeHeight and RelativeWidth properties of the LinearScale for configuring the placement and size of the scales.
I would recommend you to take a look at the Linear Scale article in our online documentation.
