Unit, or a specialization of it, classifies an InstanceSpecification to define a particular "measurement unit" in the sense of a "real scalar quantity, defined and adopted by convention, with which any other quantity of the same kind can be compared to express the ratio of the two quantities as a number" [VIM3-1.9], where a SysML value property is understood to correspond to the VIM concept of "quantity" defined as a "property of a phenomenon, body or substance, where the property has a magnitude that can be expressed as a number and a reference" [VIM3-1.1].
