The geometry unit will not be in SI Unit always. You can use below script to get geometry Unit. It would be dependent on CAD unit.
I use below script whenever I want to calculate the mesh from geometry dimensions.
GeometryUnit=str(ExtAPI.DataModel.Project.Model.Geometry.LengthUnit) #Unit of geometry UnitDict={'StandardMKS':'m','StandardNMM':'mm','StandardUMKS':'um','StandardBIN':'in','StandardBFT':'ft','StandardCGS':'cm'} LengthUnit=UnitDict[GeometryUnit] #Unit of mesh size1
