Or: kilo means a thousand, milli means 1/1000, so to convert from kilo to milli, you multiply by a million (since 1000 divided by 1/1000 is a million). If what you want is to convert metric units to non-metric units, or vice versa (for example, light-years to meters), you might just look up the specific unit, for example in the Wikipedia - usually it lists equivalents in other units.
