I believe the word would be measurement but I would like a second opinion.

English translation:Metrics
Explanation:
That is if you want to remain strictly faithful in the translation. In Simon & Schuster you find: Métrica = Metrics (part of prosody dealing with metrical measurement and composition). If it concerns music, then by all means use metrics. If not, it might be possible to use "measuring systems" or even "measures". Hope it helps.

metrics or standards of measurement


Explanation:
Apart from its use in poetry, 'metric' also has the meaning of 'standard of measurement', which seems to fit in your context.
