Si units and graphs

terminal velocity = 0.23(Density of sphere - Density of oil)g(Radius squared) where g is acceleration due to gravity.
since terminal velocity unit is ms^-1, it is not equal to the units on the other side of kgm^-3 x ms^-2 x m^2, which then equals kgs^-2 which is clearly not equal to ms^-1 what is going on here. The question was in a mock paper, and this is the relationship between velocity and radius.
