There are no arbitrary errors in such conversions. He very likely simply interpreted one millimeter as one inch which makes the whole drawing 229 inches wide (= more than 19 feet).
If he knows how to scale in Solidworks, he can scale your drawing by a factor of 1/25.4 to convert from inches to millimeters.
If he does not know how to do that, you can scale the drawing on your end with QCAD to 1/25.4 of its size and it will import on his end in such a way that he can interpret one unit as one inch.
