What is the smallest measurement?

Hmm, it's not a yoctometer, it's actually a planck length, that's apparently the size of quantam foam. However, calling the planck length a 'measurement' is a little misleading since we have no means whatever of actually measuring things that small and we may never have. It is useful currently only in theoretical work. See the discussion and modify your question if necessary.

Why do you call a measuring stick a ruler?

They are in fact two different devices that are commonly mistaken. A "measuring stick" is a stick of a given length that is used to reference another object from it's total length. These usually have no markings as such, or any calibrated length. A "ruler" (aka straightedge) IS calibrated and has measurement markings. It is used to "rule" straight lines to an exacting measurement. Originally designed for the engineering industry, they have been useful in countless other areas throught history.

Would you use square units for a swimming pool?

No. I would use linear units if measuring the swim distance or cubic units if measuring the volume of water. Square units might be useful to see how many people could use the pool before it got crowded but that would depend on whether they were there for swimming or splashing about.
