Is it true that k is unitless when dividing products by reactants ?

I think for k in the rate constant you do have units, which vary depending on which order it is. But I don't think K (at equilibrium) does

As far as I know K for equilibrium doesn’t have units but K for rate constant does based on the order of the reaction.

the units on the rate constant k must ensure that the overall units for the rate is (g/mol)/s.
