The word "measure" itself can mean a measured quantity. From NOAD:
2 a standard unit used to express the size, amount, or degree of something: a furlong is an obsolete measure of length | tables of weights and measures.
• a system or scale of such units: the original dimensions were in imperial measure.
• a particular amount of something: a measure of egg white as a binding agent.
• a standard official amount of an alcoholic drink as served in a licensed establishment.
Absent context, terms like datum ("a measurement of something on a scale understood by both the recorder (a person or device) and the reader"), number, statistic ("a single item in a statistical study"), measurement ("magnitude (or extent or amount) determined by measurement"), and previously-suggested measure and measurand are as good as any.
