That's one of the advantages of the metric system: all prefixes have a definite decimal meaning.

#### Explanation:

The $k$ in $k m$ means nothing more (or less) than $1000$.
So $1 k m = 1000 m , 1 k g = 1000 g , 1 k X = 1000 X$
(1k$=time to party?) Btw: the $k\$ is short for "kilo" from Greek chiloi=1000
