When I run a Mass Properties on a part (or assembly), why are the moments of inertia taken at the output coordinate system units in *kg * meters* instead of *kg * square meters*?

Mass properties of Part1 ( Part Configuration - Default )

Output coordinate System: -- default --

Density = 19000.000 kilograms per cubic meter

Mass = 23.455 kilograms

Volume = 0.001 cubic meters

Surface area = 0.080 meters^2

Center of mass: ( meters )

X = 0.337

Y = 0.000

Z = -0.042

Principal axes of inertia and principal moments of inertia: ( kilograms * square meters )

Taken at the center of mass.

Ix = (0.000, 1.000, 0.000) Px = 0.027

Iy = (0.000, 0.000, 1.000) Py = 0.112

Iz = (1.000, 0.000, 0.000) Pz = 0.113

Moments of inertia: ( kilograms * square meters )

Taken at the center of mass and aligned with the output coordinate system.

Lxx = 0.113 Lxy = 0.000 Lxz = 0.000

Lyx = 0.000 Lyy = 0.027 Lyz = 0.000

Lzx = 0.000 Lzy = 0.000 Lzz = 0.112

Moments of inertia: ( kilograms * meters )

Taken at the output coordinate system.

Ixx = 0.154 Ixy = 0.000 Ixz = -0.332

Iyx = 0.000 Iyy = 2.731 Iyz = 0.000

Izx = -0.332 Izy = 0.000 Izz = 2.775

Stan - I noticed this for the first time this week. It's an error.
