No rulers as such, I don't think (could be wrong), but there are certainly guides.

Designer persona, Documents menu (hold down the question mark in the corner to see the menus/tools labelled) > Guides. Use the context options at the bottom to add a vertical or horizontal guide through the middle of the document. Use the Move tool to drag the guide into place. Depending on your snap settings (I think), guides will snap to existing objects.

Also in the context options while in "guide mode": Numerically move/place a selected guide, create a guide using numerical positioning, and turn on Column Guides (regular divisions of row and column guides).

Document menu > Snapping to turn on/off snapping to guides and other objects. (Use the horseshoe magnet in the toolbar to turn overall snapping on/off).

Don’t know if anyone is still looking for this answer but here is a screenshot of where it is in the Toggle Preview Mode

That’s the View menu. ‘Preview Mode’ is one of the menu options and ‘Rulers’ is another, but rulers are a new feature in V2 of Affinity Designer for iPad.
