This is very dependent on the society concerned, but I guess you mean in a developed industrial society such as the US or Europe, and again whether you mean average or maximum demand per house.

Making it simple, the average demand per house is about 2 Kw, so 1 Mw will supply 500 houses. However if all those houses were cooking their Christmas (or Thanksgiving) turkeys at the same time, this could easily rise to 5 Kw per house, and more if electric heating is in use. Spare a thought for the power station staff keeping it all going!

Watts, and can be kiloWatts or MegaWatts depending on quantity. 1 Watt = 1 Joule per second. You can also use horsepower, 1 HP = 745.7 Watts.

How many megawatts would be needed to supply 1 million kilowatt hours?

1 megawatt = 1 million watts = 1000 kilowatts. So 1 megawatt for 1000 hours will give 1 million kilowatthours. More megawatts will give the same kilowatthours in a shorter time period.Don't forget- watts, kilowatts, megawatts are rates of energy, kilowatthours are quantities of energy. A quantity is given by a rate x a time period.

What are the units for Nuclear Power?

The fundamental unit for all types of energy is the Joule, and this is related to power as 1 Watt = 1 Joule/sec. Output power of a nuclear reactor is measured in Watts, or for large power reactors in MegaWatts, and would typically be around 3000 MW. That is the thermal output of the reactor, when coupled to a Rankine cycle steam/generating plant this would produce about 1000 MW electrical.
