This is just a guess but me thinks that its empirical.  You can't really 
convert you can just compare.  For instance we've used cetus il-2 for 
some time now and we use 100U/ml as a standard for 2-4d cultures of human 
lyc's.  But I wouldn't have any idea if 100U of our stock would give a 
similar response to 100U of another batch I would just run an assay and 
compare.
