Typically you'd refer to a winrate (on cash tables) in bb/100 (how many bb's won per 100 hands). Winrates (for winning players) become much lower as you move up in buyin levels (5bb/100 would be an easily sustainable winrate in the micros but probably impossible at higher limits).
I'm not sure what are considered as acceptable (or 'excellent') winrates for each level online or live. I'm sure others will know for certain.
