[IDV #HAT-776556]: base velocity units



Hi Joseph,

After a lengthy internal discussion 

https://github.com/Unidata/thredds/issues/674

I can confirm that you are correct concerning the units error.

I would encourage you to read that discussion. It is quite interesting.

Downloading the nightly IDV will have the correct units for these data.
