Use the symbol km
There are exactly 1000 m (meters) in 1 km (1 kilometer)
which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur"

Longer Distances are Measured in
kilometers
A trip across North America is approximately 7 600 kilometers long.
 1 kilometer (1 km) Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning 1 000 times as much. So, one thousand meters (1 000 m) is the length of 1 kilometer and it is simply written 1 km
 Longer distances like lakes and rivers are measured in kilometers Going to work or holiday distance is measured in kilometers A jog around the park can be measured in kilometers 1 kilometer is about the length of 60 train cars ROAD SIGN DRIVING TIP: If you want a quick conversion to mph (miles per hour) simply multiply by 0.6 in your head so at 90 km/h you are going approximately 54 miles per hour. 1 kilometer per hour (km/h) is equal to .6214 miles per hour
Smaller from a  kilometer

1 meter
(1 m)

meter is the Base Unit for Length and
all other Units are derived from it.
There are exactly 1 000 millimeters
(1000 mm) in 1 meter (1 m)

Smaller Measurement from a meter

1 centimeter
(1 cm)

centi is the prefix meaning
1 one hundredth of the base unit meter.
So, 1 one hundredth of a meter (0.01 m)
is simply written 1 cm

Smaller Measurement from a centimeter

1 millimeter
(1 mm)

milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the base unit meter,
being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm
