What you call "an upside down h" is a metric symbol for "micro" (see metric prefixes). It means 1/1,000,000. A "g" beside it stands for grams. All together is a unit that is 1/1000000 of a gram.

I believe you missed a zero in your explanation. Micro- means one-millionth, 1/1,000,000 or 10^(-6).

You're absolutely right, I've missed a zero. Sorry. I'll fix my post now
