You cannot work directly in pixels because currently they are not supported. There's a filed bug for enhancement here: feel free to add your comment and vote it up!

What you can do is set the ratio conversion when exporting a slide (or many) to a graphic picture (jpg, png, ....). You can specify the total width (or height) so you can have a direct reference between mm and pixels. Unfortunately this is the only way to do it I am aware (and this is how I do it to create my screen overlays).

If this answers your question please remember to mark it so for the benefit of all the community. Thanks

As far as I can tell, pixels are not an option for dimensions. From the Tools -> Options dialog, select LibreOffice Impress -> General and you'll find "Unit of Measurement". These seem to be the only options.
