It's a technical term in mathematics and many native speakers would not know it. I suggest avoiding it. There's no need to look for synonyms, "measurement" is a good word.
Another reason for not using it is that someone who did not know the word might think you were using the similar-sounding word, "menstruation!"
Another very technical word--which many native speakers would not know, is "metrology." This is the science and technology of very precise measurement, such as redefining the meter from the length of a platinum-iridium bar, to the length of so many wavelength of light, to the distance light travels in 1/299,792,458 second.
