I'm not but in gambit mesh is generated in [m]. You should always check your mesh in fluent by option grid>scale.If you have to large your mesh i.e sting the scale factor 0.001 Also you can check your mesh in fluent by grid>info.

You can make you mesh in any unit in Gambit (not just m). You then scale it (to m) in Fluent using the scale (convert function) and by specifying what ever unit you used for creating your mesh in unit. All meshes are converted to m when using fluent.
