Area command - Liter as unit?

The Area command now includes “Liter” as one of the optional units. Liter is generally considered to be a unit of volume only. If Liter is selected in the Area command then the result is given as square decimeters which is a valid unit of area. The inclusion of Liter as a unit for Area is s minor issue which I would not regard it as a priority.

Liter and Decimeter were added to the list of units for the Volume command recently. (1 liter = 1 cubic decimeter) My guess is the Area and Volume commands use the same list; hence the inclusion of Liter in the Area command. Length does not include either decimeters nor liters so I assume it uses a different list of units.
