How to change the units to metric in material editor? please see the attached picture

Unfortunately, you have to change the units for the entire library.  You cannot change the units for individual materials. 

To change the units, click the down arrow at the bottom left of the Material Browser and select Set Display Units. I recommend changing the units to the unit type you desire, make your changes and then change it back.
