The torque unit is probably kg-meters which should really be kg-force-meters since kg is properly a unit of mass, not force. Actually newton-meters is the proper unit of torque in the metric system.

Thanks for the explanation and this is why I hate the metric system. I still operate with cubic inches, feet, yards, and foot pounds.
