And here it is, complete with the revelation that a food calorie should actually be written as 62 377 milin.lár2/lúmë2.

EDIT: If anyone has any other units or values that they want converting, let me know and I'll add them to the list!

Hmm... what's the derivation of 'bit'? 'Binary digit'... well, there's notessë for 'numeral', but binary? Oh, wait:

Notesset, or '(natural) pair of numerals'. That's a nonsense statement in Quenya, as numerals don't form a natural pair (such as 'pair of hands') - there's ten of the blighters! The only way you can form a natural pair is to work in binary, where there's only two. Hence, a notesset is a single bit. (A quick delve into computer science reveals that a byte - a joke which wouldn't work too well in Quenya - is also known as an octet, so perhaps simply toldo, 'an eight', would work there. Thoughts most welcome.)
