Dear Anthony
May I possibly have some explanations on why odds ratio is a ratio scale measure?

I think you misconstrue...a ratio measurement scale and the mathematical ratio between the probabilities you mention are two entirely different concepts.
I doubt that anyone could seriously assert that RM produces ratio scale measurement – some claim it produces interval level measurement scales.
