It needs to be checked if CSS and SVG share the same unit types for <length> and <angle>. This is important for the transform primitives. 

The units are not necessarily the same at the moment. Just as a comparison for

CSS: ‘deg’, ‘grad’, ‘rad’, ‘turn’
SVG: 'deg', 'grad', 'rad'

CSS: ‘em’, ‘ex’, ‘ch’, ‘rem’, ‘vw’, ‘vh’, ‘vm’, ‘cm’, ‘mm’, ‘in’, ‘pt’, ‘pc’, ‘px’
SVG: 'number', '%', 'em', 'ex', 'px', 'cm', 'mm', 'in', 'pt', 'pc' ('%' just for presentation attributes)

CSS3 Transforms always relies on "CSS3 Values and Units" with the exception of <number> on SVG elements. SVG Transforms don't have units anyway.  Therefore it is not an issue that we need to solve in CSS3 Transforms. The SVG WG should take a look at it. Moving the bug to SVG.
