For the English system, I think it would be feet, because \'cubic yards\' is very uncommon.

1 cubic meter = 35.3 cubic feet = 1.3 cubic yard

cubic meters
(European spelling: cubic metre) A metric unit of volume, commonly used in expressing concentrations of a chemical in a volume of air. One cubic meter equals 35.3 cubic feet or 1.3 cubic yards. One cubic meter also equals 1000 liters or one million cubic centimeters.

cubic feet
