Best Answer

Several reasons.

1. All units for measuring the same attribute are related by powers of ten and the same prefices are used whether measuring length, mass, energy etc.

2. Many derived units are scaled so that their values are 1 together: for example 1 Newton (force) = 1 kilogram*metre/second2

3. All advanced countries and most of the rest of the world use it.
