See metric prefixes here:

h (hecto) equals to 100
d (deci) equals to 0.1

Assuming that both capital and lowercase L stand for the same unit, we get

hL = 100*L
dL = 0.1*L

Now how to change 100 something to 0.1 something? Just divide by 1000.

P.S. "L" abbreviation usually stands for litre, but it does not matter, since metric prefixes always have the same meaning regardless of the unit.
