Well, you can't, because those dates are hard-coded. So for now it would be a feature request to be able to have a different date format for Reports.

You would have to create a query (Reports > User Query) with the dates in the format you want and run that instead for all those reports you are interested in.

It's only that particular report that is a problem because we use RDL reporting. Yes, I think it's a feature request for now, or else you can just use queries instead.
