When asked, for example, "What does .061 inches look like?", give a picture of that distance on a ruler (life-size) for all small measurements.

Hmm, that might be hard since screen resolutions affect relative sizing....

Maybe something to scale, that's universal, like currency. How many shampoo bottles suggest using a dime-sized amount? Although, the measurement in weigh will not be the same, depending on the consistency of liquid. Just wanted to give a suggestion of to-scale comparisons in hopes it might spark someone else to further that line of thinking.
