Use markers.

First make a circular shape (or whatever you want). Make it a path (select, Object to Path - ctrl-shift-c).
Still selected, lock W,H. Set the size in whatever unit you prefer.
From Object menu, choose Objects to Marker.

Draw a path.
Select path, from effects menu, choose Modify Path - Add Nodes,
choose Division method: By max. segment length.
Choose distance between nodes (where your markers will appear). Apply. Close the Add Nodes window.
With path selected, choose Fill and Stroke menu (ctrl-shift-f).
Choose no fill (unless you want it).
Choose stroke transparent (a=0).
Choose Stroke Style - Marker and choose the marker you defined before. The width parameter in unit px will be a multiplier for the size you gave the circle before.

You can adjust the distance between markers/nodes individually, if you need to.

You can also make it using Effects - Generate from Path - Pattern along Path.

It can also be made with LPE effects (ctrl-shift-7).

In the development versions, you can define a brush and draw it freehand style (and a few other ways).
