It's the size of the number that counts !

That's not funny!
Though if you want to count that way, my QSOs with Duncan ZL3JT using my Small Wonders Lab PSK20 (at 3 watts) and the attic dipole would run at over 482 MILLION cm/W.
Maybe it's not that bad...
For QRP it should be CM/watt :-)

I spent 3yrs in outback Australia and never did get used to seeing outboard engines rated in Watts.

Please, let me advocate *not* mixing measurement systems.
Either stick to SI units (km/w) or if you want American Customary units, by all means go with mile/horsepower. Or perhaps furlong/horsepower?
Personally I’d go with km/w since both of those are what’s in the ADIF spec, but I confess that furlong/horsepower has a certain quaint eccentricity I admire.
