Would these be metric units (Uma tonelada ? = ? mil quilogramas)?

Yes!

Quatro toneladas (4 t) = quatro mil quilogramas (4.000 kg)

(In Portuguese numbers, the dot does not separate decimals, it's the comma:
4.000 = 10.000 x 0,4)

I tried "Four tonnes" and it was accepted. "Uma tonelada" can be a metric tonne or an Imperial ton.
