In Amber, unless specifically stated otherwise, units of the output files
are kcal/mol. I'm not sure if this is stated clearly enough in the manual,
as you are not the first user to post this question.

Also, note that the total energy above is with respect to an arbitrary
zero point, so the number by itself is not very useful.
