    Basic gravity (1.000 in per unit) has been agreed to be that of fresh water, i.e. 1000 kg/m^3 , therefore specific gravity  1.12 means  1.12 times that one worth 1.00 in pu and equal to 1.120 kg/m^3

    You have not specified the units you desire. SI units are in kg/m^3 but ANY units of mass / Volume are legitimate units of density.

    the 1.12 indicates that it is 1.12 * density of water.

    Water has a density of 1000 kg / m^3 approx so this would give 1120 kg/m^3

    Usually specific gravity is its density compared to water. Water is 1.00 g/cm so the density of the solution is 1.12 g/cm.
