measurand
Explanation:
I think the Catalan word is mispelled. It should be "mesurant".

measurand
n. any physical object quantity or property than can be measured

measurand: particular quantity subject to measurement (1)


expanded uncertainty (of a measurement): quantity defining an interval about the result of a measurement that may be expected to encompass a large fraction of the distribution of values that could reasonably be attributed to the measurand (4)
http://www.westgard.com/iso-glossary.htm

It should be stressed that “the definition of uncertainty of measurement is not inconsistent with other concepts of uncertainty of measurement, such as a measure of the possible error in the estimated value of the measurand as provided by the result of a measurement.

agree  Ross Andrew Parker: That sounds right, though oddly "measurand" doesn't seem to be in many dictionaries.
