My geometry was created in mm with total length 100 mm. The mesh was made in ICEM in cm units. But when the mesh is imported to CFX pre. It is shown in m. Also, the dimension has increased and shows total length of a domain as 10 m.

Also, all the calculations have been done with the length as 10 m.

It's very unusual. How to solve this problem?

In CFX Pre
a) scale the mesh back to the intended size and work with [m]
b) change the units (Edit-Options) to [mm]
