There are a few places where you can change the units. If you deselect everything and go to the Properties panel (Window > Properties, if it's not showing up), go to the Document section and change Units to points or whatever other unit of measure you prefer. You can also go to Edit > Preferences > Units... on a PC or Illustrator > Preferences on a Mac.

You can also right-click on the ruler to select units. I prefer Command-Option-Shift U to cycle through units. I believe the Windows shorcut is Control Alt Shift U.

hilaz,

 

The units that are looking weird to you are picas, or in reality picas/points, hence the p in the middle: the X value is 16 picas and 2.9367 points, a bit like degrees/minutes(/further), or pounds/shillings/pence before the Dreadful Day.
