Measuring objects

I have, in my latest story, a race of AIs who are probably going to be 2 meters long, 1 meter wide, and 1 meter deep. What's the proper format for that? I know it looks something like # x # x #, but I don't know which dimension goes in which spot, and I've tried Googling variations on "proper dimension format" and "# x # x #" and got squat.

Also, since I might be using the metric system and this is scifi, and I can only find the metric system listed up to 1 million meters (megametre), does anyone know names for larger units of distance larger than a megametre, or do they just go into parsecs and lightyears, etc., at that point?
