Assigning unit volume = 1 unit sided tetrahedron may make some calculations easier, so why not?

Say you purchasing a fridge, and it says, the volume capacity is 7 tetra foot vol.

Really what is the vol. of this fridge? do you need a calculator ? a piece of paper and a pencil, is it really easy ? well yes if it is 7 cubic foot yes it is very easy
no calculator nor piece of paper is needed, is the edge of the tetra 1 foot or is the tet. height 1 foot.

Or if we do this calculation do we convert to cubes? is it two cubes plus a reg. tet. but then what is the edge of this cube, you see, I fail to see ANY simplicity, do you?
