Unit year in german language setting not available

The definition of the unit "a" (ar, 100 m²) shadows the german version of yr, such that the unit year is not available any more.

A solution would be to

- either change german year to "Jahr" or remove it

- or change the german version of ar to "ar"

I don't know how to do that in a custom units file.

I've updated (set "ar" instead of "a" for German ar) built-in units set and uploaded Units.xml as an attachment.

Please check issue is fixed.

To change the german version of ar to "ar" is definitely the better way because year/a is often used whereas ar is something very exotic.
