Expert Answer:

Weight W of the object is gravitational force acting on it
 
W = gravitational force = mass × acceleration due to gravity
 
Acceleration due to gravity = Gravitational force / mass 
 
units of Gravitational force is Newton N and units of mass is kg
 
Hence units of acceleration due to gravity is ( N / kg ) 
 
( It is not N / m as posted in the question , may be latter 'm' is used by mistake for kg )
