ITopologicalOperator.Buffer units

The documentation for ITopologicalOperator.Buffer states that "The buffer distance is in the same units as the source shape that is being buffered".  The source shape in my case is a point feature.  How do I find out if I'm buffering that point by feet, meters, or inches?  The dataset that the point feature is in has a spatial reference as follows:
