Could it be useful to add a new column in the table to classify the physical quantity as Scalar or Vector?

Thanks & Regards,

I don't think that's necessary. As a scientist using these units, you should be able to tell which is which, what do you say?
The best way to say thank you is with a positive review:

Here's a list of 20 different vector quantities. All of these are made up of different SSI units, so it's not a practical to make note of them all. What you have to do is recall that a vector quantity consists of a direction, so if your unit includes a direction, you know where it stands.

1) Displacement
2) Velocity
3) Acceleration
4) Force
5) Torque
6) Electric field
7) Magnetic field
8) Angular velocity
9) Linear Momentum
10) Dipole moment
11) Vector potential
12) Angular momentum
13) Weight
14) Current density
15) Thrust
16) Magnetic dipole moment
17) Magnetisation
18) Polarization
19) Electric Displacement
20) Poynting Vector.
