Take your first relation for the 3 Pauli matrices individually: $$\sigma_1(t)=U^\dagger\sigma_1(0)U$$ $$\sigma_1(t)=U^\dagger\sigma_2(0)U$$ $$\sigma_3(t)=U^\dagger\sigma_3(0)U$$ Now you define a "vector" for notational convenience like the OP says in the question. I will choose to rewrite it as a column vector to visually show the relation of the above 3 ...

If $\mathbf{x}=\left(x_{1},x_{2},x_{3}\right)$ is a 3-vector rotated to $\mathbf{x}^{\prime}=\left(x_{1}^{\prime},x_{2}^{\prime},x_{3}^{\prime}\right)$ then this rotation is expressed via special unitary matrices $U \in SU\left(2\right)$ as follows : \begin{equation} \mathbf{X}^{\prime}\equiv \begin{bmatrix} ...

From the paper, which states fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) have been demonstrated to exhibit temperature dependent shifts in resonant wavelength of 10 pm/K it is fairly clear that the unit is picometer per kelvin. That is, you have some device with a resonance wavelength $\lambda_\mathrm{R}$ which depends on temperature, ...
