Pressure returned in Metres. Is this supposed to be pressure head (Pressure/ro*g) or an alternate unit for pressure?

Hi, I'm modelling a pipeline system on the EPANET program for an assignment. when examining the data after running the model, it returns the pressure at each junction in metres. I've known pressure to usually be in Pascals so wondering if this is meant to be returning the pressure head (Pressure/(ro*g)) or just the pressure?

Most probably it is metres of water as it is for pipeline design.

1 meter of water is approximately equal to 9.8 kpa
