First you take 10 of whatever you have handy...

10!
It's all simply related
in
10.

Convenient prefix attached in front of
base or derived unit, or unit of measure 
shows quantity, size or value
by 10, 100 and 1000.
•
WRITING IS EASY!
Symbols
like mL or mg or mm or kg or cm together
identify prefix and base or derived unit,
or unit of measure
.
But for most everyday experience useful prefixes are
milli 1 one thousandth (0.001)
from the everyday unit of measure
•
centi 1 one hundredth (0.01)
from the everyday unit of measure
•
kilo 1000 times as much as
the of the everyday unit of measure.

Simply divide 1 m (meter) in exactly 10 parts,
each side of which measures 10 cm (centimeters).
Then make a cube container that is
10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm (1000
cmณ)
that we can fill with water.

And like magic, when you fill this cube container with water,
it has the
volume of exactly 1 L (liter).
But then, when you place this cube filled with water on the
scale it has a
mass of exactly 1 kg (kilogram). 
(at sea level that is)

Both spellings meter and metre, as well as liter and litre
are acceptable.
ENJOY THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN
Length of 1 m (meter), Volume of 1 L (liter)
and Mass of 1 kg (kilogram).
