It's a relative measurement which may or may not be properly referenced to actual units (with a formula or otherwise) in the documentation (usually under NDA) for the chipset of the station. Most have only been given little attention in this area as it is not a requirement of the standard. You may have to form your own lookup table to convert the units, by comparing the reported number to the value measured by a spectrum analyser.. in an controlled environment with a controlled source (not a WLAN station).
