What software are you using? In Maya, you can arbitrarily decide the scale equals whatever you want. By default, the dynamics system assumes one unit=one cm, but you can change that under the nucleus node.

Of course the scale is very important. Also with some kinds of lighting...
You can set it to cms/kms/mts/yards or whatever you're used to measure with. And as Meloncov says, 1 square of the grid equals to 1 value of your measure option.

For your particular scene, I'd probably use meters or decimeters. Centimeters is gonna get you some annoyingly large numbers.
