Also, I would suggest adding radians (rad = m.m/m.m;), and changing Hz = 2*pi rad/s. Isn't rad/s more consistent than Hz most of the time?

You could also add:
%---- angle ----
m.rev = 2*pi * m.rad; % revolutions
m.deg = pi/180 * m.rad; % degrees

%---- frequency ----
m.rpm = m.rev/m.min; % revolutions per minute

%---- flow ----
m.lpm = m.L/m.min; % liters per minute
m.gpm = m.gal/m.min; % gallons per minute

This is a great update to a tool I've used frequently. I like the innovation of programmatically adding the prefix units. Thank you!

There is a bug in this part: there are no prefix H units, because the min and max are switched.
