    Microsoft didn't fix the units here, it just needs to be consistent.

    Hope this helps.

    Well the weight is referred as the normal weight measurement for You / your country.
    I know it mostly used as Kilograms, but as there is no specific name (kilogram) defined anywhere, therefore it can be anything You find logical. If You use pounds throughout every weight measurements, then enter the values in Pounds, if it is something else, then use that.

    The net weight on the item card will refer to the Base Unit of Measure.
    If you have multiple units of measure then you can define their weight as below.
    Hope that helps,
