Names of measurements

Metric units are the preferred units of measurements in countries other than the U.S. However, I’ve used the yard in crafting stores in Taiwan. So what are the names of some measurements in Taiwanese Mandarin?

Length
公尺 = meter
公里 = kilometer
碼 = yard

Weight
公克 = gram
公斤 = kilogram
公噸 = metric ton

Volume
公升 = liter
公石(ㄉㄢˋ) = hectoliter
