First of all what is unit, units are a measurement system, in which we have two basic units, Empirical unit and Metric unit.

Empirical unit is old British unit system which is used in US now a days, which includes yards, feets, inches. While Metric is Standard unit system which uses kilometres, metres, centimetres, millimetres for measurements.

To set unit we can write 'unit' in our command section and then press enter, one dialogue box of drawing units will appear, we are given settings for Length and Angle.

In length we have different types such as, Fractional, Engineering, Decimal, Architectural, and Scientific. We will select Decimal as we want to work in centimetres and metres.

Below we can select which unit should be inserted for our content, we will select 'millimetres' and set it's precision from it's column as '0.0'.

We can select the standard of our unit also, we will select 'International'.

We are also given different types of angle, such as Decimal degrees, Deg/Min/Sec, Grads, Radians, Surveyor's Units. We will use Decimal degrees and set it's precision.

After setting all the unit options we can click 'Okay' and continue.
