My own dictionary lists the measurements as:

cheb = approximately 5 pounds (2.25kg)

cheb’a’ = approximately 45-46.4 pounds (20.4-21.05kg) (9-9.28 cheb)

Sources are MSN and the Bird of Prey poster.

Overall, Okrand has been a little vague about measurements; good enough to understand roughly how heavy a think is described by a Klingon, or roughly what to tell a Klingon that a thing weighs, but not enough for serious business exchanges, or for passing on grandma’s recipe for ro’qegh ‘Iwchab, unless grandma was vague and sloppy.
