z = x * (Kg) * (Kg^-1) * (m^-3)

In mathematics, that means x multiplied by 1 kilogram multiplied by 1 reciprocal kilogram multiplied by 1 reciprocal cubic meter:
z = x (1 kg) (1/kg) (1 per cubic meter)

So, where is the x "per cubic meter"?
It's right there in your equation.

z = x (1 kg) (1/kg) (1 per cubic meter)

The (1 kg) (1/kg) terms cancel, leaving
z = x (1 per cubic meter)

i.e. x times (1 per cubic meter)

ETA: x times (1 per cubic meter) = x per cubic meter
