Definitions for magnetic quantity
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
The magnetism possessed by a body; it is proportional to the action of similar poles upon each other, or to the field produced by the pole in question. It is also called the strength of a pole. The force exercised by two similar poles upon each other varies with their product and inversely with the square of the distance separating them; or it may be expressed thus (m * m) / (L^2). This is a force, and the dimensions of a force are ML/(T^2). Therefore, (m^2)/(L^2) = ML/(T^2) or m = (M^.5)*(L^1.5)/T.
