The ODE wiki area can be really helpfull for such questions
>From the wiki:
Q: What units should I use with ODE?
A: Short Answer: Metric, MKS (Metre-Kilogram-Second), thus your lengths will
be expressed in meters, masses in kilograms, and timestep in seconds.
A: Longer Answer: technically, ODE doesn't use specific units. You can use
anything you wish, as long as you stay consistent with yourself. For example,
you could scale all your values by Pi, and everything will be fine. (Could
someone please specify if imperial would work too? As this writer does not
know the relationship between units in this system)
As far as books go I only know of Game Gems 4 that mentions ODE:
