There is no International System of Units (SI) base unit for weight.

Weight is a force, due to gravity, so is measured in newtons, which is termed an SI derived unit.

Weight and mass are often used interchangeably in everyday language because they are related properties of matter, but they are different properties. So, in everyday usage, we often say that things are 'weighed' in kilograms.
