units of measure in coverage.dbf

Hello, I would like to do some work in Excel with my coverage.dbf file from harvest, but I cannot figure out what the units of measure are. This is from a FM1000 and I am guessing that these columns have these units:

- Speed: meters/sec? (range from 0.1 to 3.5, most are 1.2-1.5)
- XTE: meters (common values are -1 or -2 to 1 or 2)
- Volume: ? ml/sq meter? (common values are 4000 to 75000 in soybeans)
- Grain_Flow: ? ml/sec? kg/ha or g/sq m? (common values are 200 - 900 in soybeans)
- AppldRate: ? (common values are .300 - .500 some are as high as 5)
- Moisture: metric %? just kidding

I can tell the Height is in meters and the Tmpr is Celsius, so I assume they are all metric? I'd like to be able to get to lbs and square feet somehow, which I could do if I just knew what the starting units are. Can you give me a clue please?

I can see units and multiplication factors in the Task Data xml, but they don't seem to match up with the numbers I have on coverage.dbf? Are they directly associated?
