From the Manual:
MainEngines, RetroEngines, HoverEngines, CorrEngines – maximum acceleration (in m/s2) caused by the engines: the main, braking, takeoff, and shunting engines. If the value is zero, it means that ship has no corresponding engines (for example, the Shuttle has no braking engines, while any starship has no takeoff engines).
TurnEngines – “thrust” of the shunting engines while using them to rotate the ship. Larger value for faster rotations.
Since it's not explicitly declared, I'm not entirely sure of the unit for the TurnEngines value, but it could be radians per second, the radian has no units.
