Stilb (sb) has a dimension of L-2J where L is length, and J is luminous intensity. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit cd/m2 by multiplying its value by a factor of 10000.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Luminous luminance include Apostilb (asb), Candela Per Square Meter (cd/m2), Candle Per Square Centimeter (candle/cm2), Candle Per Square Foot (candle/ft2), Candle Per Square Inch (candle/in2), Candle Per Square Meter (candle/m2), Foot-Lambert (ft-L), Lambert (L), and Nit (nit).
