They are not in the same class -- like comparing apples with grasshoppers; you cannot convert % to grams. Grams [g] can be converted to kilograms [kg], pounds [lb] or ounces [oz]. Percent is a dimensionless quantity, because 100% = 1 (one), with no units. ====================================

This question cannot be answered sensibly. A kilometre is a measure of distance, with dimensions [L]. A percent is a pure ratio, with no dimensions. Basic dimensional analysis teaches that you cannot convert between measures with different dimensions such as these without additional information.
