Change the SingleLetterItalics option to False.  You could either change 
this in the InlineCell style, as you've already discovered, or you could 
change it in the TraditionalForm style, which would affect all 
TraditionalForm cells (not just inline ones).

Additionally, if you prefer StandardForm in general (for example, you'd 
like your inline cell to be Courier, non-italicized), then you can use the 
menu command Cell->Default Inline FormatType->StandardForm, which changes 
the default form for all future inline cells you create.  It doesn't do 
anything about the ones you've already created, though.
