It is referred to as percent, but it is really grams per 100 milliliters (or deciliter). It is NOT corrected for the fact that 100 mL of blood is about 106 grams; it is not a true percentage by weight. This link may give you further info:

For your example, 7.27 g/L would be 0.727 g/dL. It would most likely be a fatal dose. Our traffic laws about around 0.08 g/dL, but it is quoted as 0.08% BAC.

BTW -

If you get (blow) a 0.0800 on a BAC test anywhere in the USA as of August 2005 you are busted for DUI. It must be BELOW 0.0800 (like 0.0799 or under).
