We have an enthought.units package in ETS, and for unit-ed numpy arrays we have 
(fairly new) UnitArray and UnitScalar in enthought.numerical_modeling.units.api 
Automatic conversions on arithmetic expressions are not performed; however, we 
do have a "@has_units" function decorator that will perform unit conversions on 
function inputs automatically (and will label--but not convert--the outputs of a 
function) If you are interested in checking it out I can get you more
