As I said, I can point out some drivers that are known to report SNR in dB, but I can't tell you the units used in the other drivers.

It would be nice if it was standardized across all of the drivers, but specs aren't freely available for every device out there.

Any SNR code that I have written, or will write in the future, will be reported in dB.
