That depends on which aspect of the cube you are measuring and the size of the cube.. If you are measuring the dimensions, you might use meters. If you are measuring the surface area, you might use square meters. If you are measuring the volume, you might use cubic meters.

the wigth and length

Density = Mass/Volume

The answer depends on the size of the cube: it could be a micrometre, vernier callipers, a ruler, a tape measure.

A regular (3D) solid could be a cube or cuboid, and a rigid plastic ruler (as used in a school) or tape measure could be used. A sphere could be measured by a flexible tape measure around it widest circumference, as used in tailoring. Nowadays, there are instruments that use a laser beam to measure regular and irregular 3D shapes.

No.

-- Measure the length of any one edge. -- Multiply that number by itself. -- Multiply the result by the number again. -- The result is now the volume of the cube.

That is the volume of a cube with all side length of 1 meter. But a 'cubic' meter is not necessarily a 'cube' with equal edges. It can be rectangular, cylindrical, spherical, pyramid shaped, or any irregular shape. As long as it takes up exactly the same space as the 1-meter-on-each-side cube, it is a cubic meter.

stratisfied squamous epithelium they are flattened and irregular on the top layer and as you get to the basal surface they become more cuboidal to columnar

You measure its mass and volume and then density = mass/volume.
