    um I dont think anyone can tell you exactly how many conversion factors you should know. Obviously the more the better. Just learn as many as you possibly can.

    I would at least know:

    1m = 100cm
    1L = 1000mL
    1mL = 1cm^3
    1kg = 1000g
    1 gallon = 4 quarts = 128oz
    1 quart = 16oz
    1 gallon = 3.78L
    1 mile = 5280 feet
    1 km = 0.6mile

    ....Like Body said, more the merrier!!!
