Why can units be ignored during equilibrium constant calculations? Can equilibrium constants still be determined for a system with both solutes and gases?

The units are not ignored during equilibrium calculations, all the units simply cancel out. Also, yes you can determine the equilibrium constant for an equation with both solutes and gases. Just makes sure that all of your values are in mol/L.
