What is the dimension of "minThickness" in SHM?

Could anyone please tell me what the dimension of "minThickness" under "addLayersControls" in "snappyHexMeshDict" is?

Many thanks in advance.

normally it should be [m].
If you switch off the "relativeSize" you get an absolute value. If its falls the height of your cells depend on the nearest cells to your BC. Have a look at the snappyHexMesh Wiki and the presentation published this year at the 7th workshop
