can you use units of measurement as variables?

If you are looking for length which is the same as the width, however you are given a height and total volume, how would you calculate it? While doing this, could you use the unit of measurement (meters) as a variable?
Ex. y(length) x y(height) x 0.2m(width) = 100m³
Does 100 m x m x m = 100m³?
I was on a debate that a unit of measurement cannot be used as variables themselves or on their own. Which one is correct?
