M would be miles? From the Dalesman's Litany.

I is inch - if t'water comes half an inch higher I'll 'appen get t'maple for nowt.

B is I think for bag - The question of how much each son would take for the grinding is asked by the father, and each one ups the ante, and the last one is made miller. Could be bushel, though.

P is pennyweight, My Grandfather's clock.

Q is quarts? Three drunken maidens

This is fun!!
