I thought a cross-section would be $cm^2$, not $cm^{-2}$. The information you really lack is probably the macroscopic cross section. That is, $\Sigma = n \sigma$, where n is the number density of the target objects, in number per cubic centimeter. Thus, this gives a value of inverse length units. Using this, you can readily speak in terms of the ...
