As a personal choice, to deal with this problem, I use the full word
"gram" with udunits-1. And "mgram" is accepted as milligram, which I
find better than ukg, which i would never have thought of by myself.

 I guess (can't test it by now) that "mgram" should also be accepted by
udunits-2. Is it an option for you ?
