@HodofHod can you supply a source regarding gevurah? Also, I'll just throw this out there, Menachos 41a indicates that the thumb is the basic unit of measurement.

comment How could the numerals יה and יו be used irreverently?
I would add that this rule seems to be applied inconsistently as 31 is usually written aleph lamed.
