Clear Trace is a great tool and I sincerely wish it tells what units the measurements are.

I would like to know what are the units of these measurements

I believe ALL measurements are in Milliseconds? If yes, would the average also be in Milliseconds (I know its a dumb question about average, but dont want to assume when giving performance reports to leadership).

ClearTrace reports the metrics in the same units that Profiler would capture them. You can see the SQL Server documentation on Profiler or trace for more details.

That said...

CPU is in milliseconds
Reads is logical 8KB page reads
Writes is logical 8KB page writes
Duration is milliseconds for a 2005 trace and microseconds for any version after that. And SMO doesn't report the version or units so i just return the raw number.
