What units are story points estimated in?
As you have recommended Mike Cohn's book about User Stories: His blog contains a lot of great explanations on this topic as well, see mountaingoatsoftware.com/blog/tag/story-pointsblog. His post on "It's Effort, Not Complexity" is one of the most discussed ones on his blog and there he basically states that "Story points are not about the complexity of developing a feature; they are about the effort required to develop a feature."
What's the best explanation of what Story Points are?
"As others have mentioned story points are a relative measurement of complexity for a user story." Note that Mike Cohn actually argues that "It's Effort, Not Complexity", see mountaingoatsoftware.com/blog/its-effort-not-complexity for a detailed discussion on this topic.
