Can I know how to interpret lidar data obtained on scan topic. I am using Hokuyo UST-10LX. Are the published values in cms or m ? I could not get this from the datasheet.

Thanks in advance.

The sensor_msgs/LaserScan message has the range in metres. What the sensor puts out doesn't matter, it is the ROS API that counts.
