%volumelisting has the wrong conversion factor for liter present. 
Oops.

But anyway, it would be better to look at one of the other unit
packages for Maxima - if this is share/contrib/unit.mac I'm afraid it's
unmaintained.  As your bug shows, virtually no work went in to putting
a useful number of unit conversions into the conversion lists.  There
are still some problems with certain types of calculations that were
never resolved.

Robert, are you still developing your package?
