It is because you want the right units in the end when you multiply everything to find the rate using the differential or integrative rate law. In a reaction with an overall order of 4 for example, you will have the unit of mol/L multiplied by itself 4 times, so the units of k must be different so that the rate is in moles per liter per second.
