hi, what about

<measure lang="it" value="12" unit="KG">12 chilogrammi</measure>

UAs can provide inline tools for displaying measurement as specified by user
locale (for example in US kg->lb)

or spec can generalize <time> to <measure> any localized data

<measure unit="DATETIME" lang="it" value="2007-10-05">dieci maggio
duemilasette</measure>
