I do not see how the Bookmark facilities are capable of producing needed result. Since you keep an index of sheets you could supplement it with page numbers and import those. That would take a couple of minutes at the most. Let me know if you need more details.

If you want to have your dimension above the line, change Inline Caption to No. You may have to set this style as a default so other PDFs look like this. Once you change the Inline Caption to No you'll be able to drag the measurement with your mouse.
