Different Units for the same counter

We have 2 filers and on each one of them the Units used for the same counter are different, see below.

If there a way to control (set) the units. Is there a way when asking for it to specify in what units the answer should return?

Different Units for the same counter

Unfortunately the unit depends on the ontap version the filer is running and is not adjustable. Starting in ontap 7.3 they changed the unit from millisec to microsec..
