Bernoullis equation and appropriate units

I've just completed a question using Bernoullis equation but I am unsure of what units I should give the answer in.

By taking the units of the terms in the equation to be

Pressure density velocity density acceleration height

Nm^2 Kg m^-3 m s^-1 Kg m^-3 m s^-2 m


And then simplifying I get

N m^-1 kg^2 s^-3

This doesnt look great..... Am I on the right lines though?

Units should be in terms of energy J or kg m2 s-2 in SI/mks, or specific energy, m2 s-2.
