Assuming the old and new units you give are consistent with each

@kbd{@w{u c} cm @key{RET} in @key{RET}} converts the number 2 on the

@defvar calc-allow-units-as-numbers
When converting units, the variable @code{calc-allow-units-as-numbers}
determines whether or not values which can be simplified so that
they don't contain units (such as @samp{ft/in} can be simplified to 12)
can be regarded as not containing units. If
@code{calc-allow-units-as-numbers} is non-@code{nil}, then @kbd{u c}
will prompt for both old units and new units when converting an expression
like @samp{ft/in}, otherwise @kbd{u c} will only prompt for the new units.

The variable @code{calc-undo-length} determines the number of undo
steps that Calc will keep track of when @code{calc-quit} is called.
