I'm not sure if it makes any difference, but I changed my mental running units from km to miles when I moved from France to the UK, and now I've lost my ability to understand km! I find it more useful to think in miles here because that's mainly what everyone else talks about (re. pace in min/mile etc.) and that's how the training schedules I use are organised.
But I agree with Kev that you've loads of time to start increasing your mileage gradually.
