Maximum queue size deals with the situations when network packets come at a faster rate than the limit allows.

For example: you capped the speed at 1 Mbit/s, but network packets keep arriving at 2 Mbit/s. As soon as the queue fills up with more packets than is set in this setting, the software will begin dropping them.

What measure does the queue size use? Is it kilobits or megabits?

Neither. It's the maximum number of network packets in the queue before they start being dropped.
