There are different standards. The original standard is 1 kg/ unit, but there are other options today. CalPoly, which launches the highest number of cubesats today, sets the standard at 1.33 kg/ unit. If you have a cubesat launched by someone else, they might allow even more mass. NASA states that simply it depends on the dispenser, which is true.
