From the New Klingon Word list:

(n) Hertz (frequency) [from veS QonoS, HolQeD, v1n3p9]

This strikes me as very odd.

Why would Klingons have a word for 86,400 times the frequency of the
revolution of the planet Earth around its own axis?  If it was a borrowed
word, it would be one thing, but it doesn't look like it...

Or is this a mistake on part of the translator, and this is meant to
represent "the inverse of the Klingon time unit most closely corresponding
to a human second?"  Do we know anything about Klingon time keeping anyway?
