It is also known as kilogram force per metre, kilogram force/meter, kilogram force/metre, kg/m. This unit is commonly used in the MKpS unit system. Kilogram Force Per Meter (kgf/m) has a dimension of MT-2 where M is mass, and T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit N/m by multiplying its value by a factor of 9.80665.
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 Surface tension include Dyne Per Centimeter (dyn/cm), Erg Per Square Centimeter (erg/cm2), Erg Per Square Millimeter (erg/mm2), Newton Per Meter (N/m), Ounce Force Per Foot (ozf/ft), Ounce Force Per Inch (ozf/in), Pound Force Per Foot (lbf/ft), Pound Force Per Inch (lbf/in), Poundal Per Foot (pdl/ft), and Poundal Per Inch (pdl/in).
