as above

Explanation:
Looking in most good dictionaries one can find "cu." as cubic ("cúbico") and m. as metre (metro). One would assume therefore, as another person already has done, that cu.m. = metro cúbico.

I've just looked on the Eurodictautom site and there are some other references to "cu." but not with the "m." term. See the ref. below.
I hope this helps.

metros cúbicos

Explanation:
In spanish, the abbreviation m.cu. is also used so that it's as similar to the original as possible. Good luck.
