  Units of Measurement
We measure the length of a race in meters, but the length of the long jump event in feet and inches.
There are two systems for land measurement (one based on the yard and the other on the rod) and a third system for distances at sea.
In this way, all the units of measurement Americans use every day are based on the standards of the metric system.

A unit-of-measure is a constant-quantity that serves as a standard of measurement for some dimension.
There is no intrisic property of a unit that makes it primitive or fundamental; rather, a system-of-units defines a set of orthogonal dimensions and assigns units for each.
Units are not scales, which have reference origins and can have negative values.

 Concepts - Basic Units of Measure
Units of time is a simple matter, things occur in a linear fashion and so a value of time is assigned.
While on Earth we measure distance (and dimensions for that matter) in either centimeters, meters, and kilometers for the metric system and inches, feet, and miles for the English system, distances to distant galaxies is given in light-years.
Measure of light-years and parsecs do not suffer the same confusion, but the light-year seems to be more popular than using the parsec.

 Ebtx - Unit Measure   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Clearly, without an external absolute standard of measure, there is no way to keep time or measure distance with respect to the marker because increasing speed is equivalent to shortening the unit length.
Where space is shorter, the marker slows to maintain a 'spacetime unit' of measure.
Therefore, the marker, travelling outward at unit velocity, will encompass 4 pi R^2 countable points per unit time and will have encompassed 4/3 pi R^3 countable points at any given time (where R is the radius of the present manifold in unit lengths).
