In the administration folder /sources/settings.index.inc.php:

Near line 390, find:

'product_weight_unit' => array('Lb' => $lang['settings']['weight_unit_lb'], 'Kg' => $lang['settings']['weight_unit_kg']),

Change to:

'product_weight_unit' => array(
  'Lb' => $lang['settings']['weight_unit_lb'],
  'Oz' => "Imperial (oz)",
  'Kg' => $lang['settings']['weight_unit_kg'],
  'g' => "Metric (g)",

You will need to mention how you do shipping, as most (all) non-USA shippers want to use "kg" as the weight unit.
