In the template editor, use an ontology to describe the units.
I would say use 1112 (Units of measurement). Make sure to link that via NCBO ID into the code, so that we can change that later easily (just like with e.g. Subject species).

For Jildau: my thoughts are:
* Units of measurement (1112):  http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/42646
* SNOMED Clinical Terms (1353):  http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/42789
* NCI Thesaurus (1032):  http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/42838

The first is nice and concise, but too strict, e.g. nmol/L is not in there as term, only 'nanomole' and then 'unit per liter'.
The latter is a very broad ontology.

This is a nice idea but is has been open for 6 months... what do we do with this? Setting to 0.6.2 and assigning to Kees
