I tried going to the Block Editor and changing the Units. But even after doing so, I find no chnage in its size.
I have inlcuded 2 pictures below. In both, there is a standard M10 nut. But the M10 bolt size remains the same, no matter whatever unit I choose - mm or m ?????
can you upload that drawing?

I'm not sure what the problem is (in the SAMPLE.DWG), when I measure the object it shows me a diameter of 10, at least the value you wanted, isn't it?
The other drawing has to be used more careful as the blocks are not defined in millimeter, so just redefine the blocks units is not enough, each block-content has first to be scaled to the correct (millimeter)-size, then it can be used to insert in drawings set to millimeter.
E.g. when you edit the block "M24x50 Hex Head Bolt Sv" and measure the diameter of the thread, it's not 24mm, it's 0.9446 (unitless) ... and inserting that without scaling it first to 24mm will result in a wrong finished size).

Actually, the M10 nut is fine. The problem was with the Bolt, as you have identified, the Indication and the diameter doesn't match. ("E.g. when you edit the block "M24x50 Hex Head Bolt Sv" and measure the diameter of the thread, it's not 24mm, it's 0.9446 (unitless) ...")
Now I got, it. I need to scale first in the block and then insert them !!!!
Thanks a lot for your time in explaining my doubts clearly.
