Is decameter and hectometer common length units in Romanian? I've never heard of it before being used in English...

Me neither ... I'm a 48 year old Brit and both are new to me! :)

Well I can't speak for Romania, but here in France we use those units, most of the time at school, to convert one unit to another for example(Same for the weights, btw. Décagramme, hectogrammes, etc...). We also have a tool to measure length and it is called 'décamètre'.

No, they are only used in schools, not in real life.

alternative spellings should be accepted: in British English, "metru" is "metre" Therefore hectometre should not be rejected.

I reported for "millimetre, decametre, hectometre".
