Parameter Description
bgcolor The colour of the background of the table
name The name of the unit (defaults to {{PAGENAME}}). Capitalize the name as if it appeared in the middle of a sentence, for example, "watt" rather than "Watt".
image The image for the infobox (use full wikicode)
caption A caption for the image
standard The unit system (system of measurement) of which the unit is a part (e.g. SI)
quantity The type of quantity of which it is a unit
symbol The symbol used for the unit
symbol2 A secondary, alternative symbol for the unit
namedafter The person after which the unit is named
extralabel
extradata
Miscellaneous (e.g., a unit conversion if only one is given)
inunitsN Conversions: the unit expressed in {{{unitsN}}}, where N can be 1 to 6
inunits_impN Imperial conversions: the unit expressed in {{{units_impN}}}, where N can be 1 to 6
inunits_usN U.S. conversions: the unit expressed in {{{units_usN}}}, where N can be 1 to 6
