Set axis scaling on engineering plot?

GROUPS:

I'm trying to format a sample computation of a problem for my heat-transfer students, generating a plot of the melting rate of some ice. I can get the plot to display, but there is a mysterious 1:100 scale factor in the axes. See attached file for the full problem description.

Addendum: If I input the thickness data in meters instead of cm, I get a correct result. This would seem to indicate the Plot function doesn't allow unit simplification to happen properly. Suggestions?
