Unitizing applies to my grade 9 course when they are encouraged to make referents with their body. Before they can make referents they need to be able to understand the linear measurement. I’ve had many students over the year who do not even understand how to read the rule and how to use it to measure lengths.
I also think more students need to be exposed to the idea that they choosing their own units to use are acceptable as long as they can explain why behind it.
