Parameters for model units like mass and density

Parameters for model units like mass and density

Is there a parameter to show what the model units are? 

 

For example: On a drawing I want to show the model mass so I use &PRO_MP_MASS[.2].  But I want to be able to show the units of the reported mass.  I feel like there should be a parameter that is something like "&PTC_MASS_UNITS" or "&MODEL_MASS_UNITS", but I haven't been able to find anything.

Thanks @tbraxton.  I was hoping there would be an easier way since it seems like an easy thing to grab and a good way to check material assignments.  The method Brian Martin suggests will be difficult to apply to an already existing assembly.
