    What unite represent the volume of co2 for priming beer ?
    i.e. this value : German Wheat Beer 3.3 - 4.5 volumes, 3,1 g / 100 ml or grams/liter ?

    It is a ratio of volume (CO2 to beer), i.e. one volume is one liter (or gallon) of CO2 at atmospheric pressure in one liter (or gallon) of beer.
