Yes

#### Explanation:

If I am twice as heavy as you the ratio of our weights is $2 : 1$ whether you weigh me in pounds, kilograms or anything else.

If I am $\text{100 kg}$ and you are $\text{50 kg}$, the ratio is $100 : 50 = 2 : 1$

If I am $\text{220 lb}$ and you are $\text{110 lb}$, the ratio is $220 : 110 = 2 : 1$

$\left(\text{100 kg = 220 lb, 50 kg = 110 lb}\right)$
