I think it is important to use the precise language when referring to units. When teaching the concept, I have even used objects such as paper clip to measure a piece of yarn of certain length. I encourage students to describe the dimensions in terms of units. Once students have good understanding of the concept, they can visualize to make better predictions of the quantities in a given problem.
