In science:

In order to convert them into physical units they must be expressed in terms of some experimentally known, dimensionful reference quantity Q.
Review of lattice results concerning low energy particle physics
We assume that this number is n and that the measuring instrument can contain no less than one and no more than n units of the conserved quantity.
Translation of "Die Messung quantenmechanischer Operatoren" by E.P.~Wigner
The quantities (ˆr, ˆθ, ˆφ) are the usual unit vectors for spherical coordinates.
Magnetically Controlled Outflows from Hot Jupiters
Because the quantity qH −1/2 does not have units of area, the constant λ is not the mass outflow rate.
Magnetically Controlled Outflows from Hot Jupiters
To make all physical quantities dimensionless, we sometimes also use the mass of the black hole as a unit, M = 1.
Foundations of Black Hole Accretion Disk Theory
Since the static quark anti-quark potential cannot be measured experimentally the value of the parameters r0 and r1 in physical units in the continuum should be determined using some other experimentally measured quantity.
Lattice QCD at non-zero temperature
Since clumps are the star forming units, their crossing times may be the more relevant quantities. A popular option is the free-fall time (e.g., Krumholz & McKee 2005).
Star Formation in the Milky Way and Nearby Galaxies
We emphasize that this quantity is not guaranteed to have zero mean and unit variance (even approximately) under the null hypothesis.
Score, Pseudo-Score and Residual Diagnostics for Spatial Point Process Models
In appendix F, we summarize our notation and conventions and provide a brief overview of different quantities and units used throughout the work.
Influence of internal structure on the motion of test bodies in extreme mass ratio situations
Using our value for r1 and the MILC values for r1/a given in Table I we can determine a in fm on each ensemble or, equivalently, a−1 in GeV needed to convert lattice quantities to physical units.
Precision tests of the J/{\psi} from full lattice QCD: mass, leptonic width and radiative decay rate to {\eta}_c
Since the relevant scaling parameter of the theory in the large-N limit is expected to be θ/N, it follows that the dependence on θ in quantities like, e.g., the energy density per unit area of domain walls separating different vacua, or the mass gap, should be suppressed like 1/N 2 in the ’t Hooft limit.
SU(N) gauge theories at large N
These articles found numerical evidence that the model, with the simple symmetric twist described above, correctly describes the physics of the largeN theory in a large volume, and reported results for quantities like Tc/ΛL, the deconfinement temperature in units of the lattice Λ-parameter.

Since the power Dℓ∗ has units of µK2, we clearly want to estimate it by some quantity ˜D that is quadratic in the data.
A method for extracting maximum resolution power spectra from microwave sky maps
The amplitudes of these functions essentially refer to the unit of measures given by the lower cut-offs but they have no particular physical meaning because they are not intrinsic quantities.
