I just wonder what are the standard units of measure in Gazebo? Is there anything like ROS REP 103 to standardize the units?

As far as I know, there's no complete documentation like the ROS REP 103.

In general, Gazebo uses SI units, for example:

Coordinate frames are right-handed, with Z up, X forward and Y to the left.

Euler angles follow the roll (about X axis), pitch (about Y axis), yaw (about Z axis) order about a fixed reference frame.

So, If I have 0.1 of length, it means that it is 0.1 meters. Is that correct? Thanks a lot.
