Displaying Unit Price Information

The unit price of a product is the base price per measurement unit. For example for a 600g pack of cereals, the unit price of this product would be the price per 1kg.
Displaying the unit price is currently only supported for metric units.
This setting fulfills the EU Norm 98/6/EG about displaying price information for products.
