Units of Measurements (Volkszähler connected via MQTT) -> scale is wrong

Hey, when trying to implement volkszähler (basically a smart meter integration for all kind of meters and gateways), I am experiencing some issues.
I wanted to use the MQTT implementation. This sends numbers, in case of the first channel, thats watt-hours (Wh) for the value “positive active energy” / OBIS 1.8.0:

So i will get kWh instead of Wh

Where or how can i specify, what unit (Wh, kW etc.) i want to use for a certain channel/item?

Thanks for your support!

You have to set the unit parameter.
