Two ways:

1. The "scale"-Option while converting with fluent3DMeshToFoam
2. If this is already done use the "transformPoints" utility.

I'm a bit late, but for all applications in OpenFOAM, you can always run each command with the option "-help" and see how things might work:
Code:

transformPoints -help
The rest (sometimes) is trial-and-error ;)

Best regards,
