[lammps-users] Airebo potential units

Helllo everyone,
        When I'm using the airebo potential for carbon nanotubes, the potential file writes that,
    0.002843732471143 epsilon_CC
    0.002064935027177 epsilon_CH
    0.001499422575693 epsilon_HH
    3.4      sigma_CC 
    3.025      sigma_CH 
    2.65      sigma_HH 

        In the input file, I used real units. However, I read the original paper of airebo and they used eV unit for epsilon. 
        So, my question is, if I want to use airebo potential in real  units, do I need to change the three epsilon number for kCal/mol or I just need to do nothing and lammps will change it automatically for me? 
        For example. the first number 0.0028eV equals to 0.0644kCal/mol.
Thanks guys.
