```Stata does not know anything about your variables
that you have not told it. Thus, if you use certain
units in your dataset, but wish to change to other
units, the translation is your responsibility.

I don't know if this answers the question, which
doesn't seem at all clear to me: for example, what
is reality, independent of choice of units?
