Ditto for Spanish, which follows the same rules as Norwegian and
Croatian, as mentioned in this thread.

Spanish is consistent with ISO 31-0/ISO 80000-1 standards and uses a
no-break space between a value and its unit symbol, unless it stands
above the baseline (degrees and primes). There is, however, a general
lack of education w.r.t. typographical syntax among Hispanophones, so
you can see it both spaced and unspaced, as in English. But at least
in formal or carefully-edited writing, it will be spaced.

Thanks
