In a zero order, K has the units of concentration/time, in a first order the units are 1/time, and in a second order the units are 1/concentration*time.

Here's a handy table for the units of k that I like to refer to. This one is in dm^3 but this is the same as liters (L).

A zero order reaction has units of concentration/s, a first order reaction units are s^-1, and a second order reaction the units are 1/concentration*s.
