What is recommended notation for custom units?

E.g. I am using %% units (percentage from free space)
( http://www.terrainformatica.com/layout/fspu.htm )

Approach with custom attributes - to prepend their names
with something started with minus is not working here I guess:

height:12-h-smile-%%;

cannot be parsed properly at all.... 

I believe that if UA will bump into something like this:

height:12miles;

the value should be ignored completely.

Am I right?
