I tried to add \spaceddigits to the \unit command, but it didn't
work. If someone has an idea how to do that, I'd greatly appreciate.

That's a way to solve it, yes. But I'd prefer it to be integrated
into the \unit command. It looks cleaner and I don't have to modify
the sources to use a different command.

Is there a way to hook the \spaceddigits into \unit somehow?

Shouldn’t \spaceddigits use the separator as defined by \setdigitmode and 
\setdigitorder?

It is an additional feature that may or may not be linked to language. For 
example, in Swedish originally, the comma and stop are reversed relative 
English, but in modern times, a stop for decimal point might be used. To avoid 
confusion between commas and stops as decimal points there is an recommendation 
admitting both, using spaces as separators. And in India, they might prefer 
digit groups of two instead of three.

Maybe this should be a language specific parameter.  How would you achieve a
similar result with the Indian numbering system
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_numbering_system> , for instance?

 

Also, decimal and thousands separators vary from country to country.  In
France, for example, they use the comma for the decimal separator, and space
for the thousand separator.

Hi Marco,

 

Can this give what you wish?

 

\define[2]\myunit{\spaceddigits{#1}\unit{#2}}

\starttext 

\myunit{123456789}{volt}

\stoptext

Hi!

I'm wondering if there's a way to have automatic thousands separation in the
\unit command? \spaceddigits does that, but it doesn't work inside \unit.
And
using both would be quite verbose to write. Example:

\starttext
 %% no thousands separation
 \unit{123456789 volt}

 %% manual thousands separation works
 \unit{123,456,789 volt}

 %% automatic thousands separation, but not using \unit
 \let\spaceddigitsseparator,
 \spaceddigits{123456789}\,V

 %% fails, no output
 \unit{\spaceddigits{123456789} volt}
\stoptext
