The unit is the metre. Then there are prefixes added on to the start of the word 'metre' to denote the amount of metres, however these prefixes can be used for other units too. eg. the prefix 'kilo' means a thousand, if you add it on to the unit 'metre' then it's a thousand metres (kilometre), if you add it on to the unit 'watt' then it's a thousand watts (kilowatt).
Tera - Trillion
Giga - Billion
Mega - Million
Kilo - Thousand
Milli - Thousandth
Micro - Millionth
Nano - Billionth
Pico - Trillionth
73 micrometres = 73 millionths of a metre
23 megawatts = 23 million watts
50 millilitres = 50 thousandths of a litre
2 terabytes = 2 trillion bytes

1 / 1,299 792,458 second.

The scientific arena has long adopted the metric system as standards for measure, it is not a law, any standard can be used.

If you can see something in biology it has scale values.
