[lammps-users] unit of the press tensor

Hi all
  I use dump custom to get sxx,syy...but I get confused
about their units. I checked the mail list and see Paul and
Steve's answers:atm*ang^3. And I also notice that Paul say

"LAMMPS is essentially assuming a per-atom volume of 1 cubic angstrom (again,
assuming you're using real units), so you still have to normalize by the
number of cubic angstroms per atom that you really want."
Does that mean I should multiply sxx and number of cubic ang per atom to get the
real sxx which unit is atm*ang^3?
or the sxx dump by lammps is just in atm*ang^3?
I use metal unit
Thank you in advance!
