Two things resonated with me. First using fractions to define the relationship of metric units might help some students who struggle with the relationships between them. Second, the comment above about how dividing fractions is partitioning units. I had not thought of it that way but it makes perfect sense. If I can help help students understand this, it might make more sense to them.
