Number formatting in plots

I'm using 4.2. I want to have SI suffixes in all my printed number instead 
of engineering or scientific notation.

1.23 10^6 -> 1.23M

4335 10^-9 ->4335n

How can I do this by default in all printed numbers (also in axis of 
plots). Is it a StyleSheet thing or something like that?

Best regards and thanks in advance for your help
