why did Vegeta think it would be a good ideia for Nappa fighting without scouter? if Nappa was using it,he would be able to avoid Chaos' surprise attack and realise how dangerous kiezan was.

It might be a dub line, but I recall Vegeta saying they're pretty much useless because they can just mask their power levels. Chiaotzu could've kept it unreadable until the last second, when it was already too late for Nappa.

The scouters were misleading them about their strength maybe he didn't want to underestimate them anymore .

Becuase power levels are bullshit. Hell, Vegeta even points this out when he's fighting Jeice, that putting too much faith in scouters is not a wise thing to do.

Because Vegeta knew that Piccolo, Gohan, and the others can raise their battle power higher and knew that the scouters were useless.

it is ironic they took off their scouters because:

1-they understimeted the z-fighters anyway.

2-the scouters still shows accurate values when they power up.

3-they won't be able to realise when the z-fighters surpass them using power up or technique.

4-they still uses scouter to check goku's "base" power.

5-radditz didn't die because he trusted the numbers,he died because he didn't,otherwise radditz would have considered gohan a treat due the latter's high power level. in fact,the scouter saved his life once warning him about piccolo charging.
