I *THINK* that "unit" and "lesson" are used in the same manner...I could be wrong, but I can't find a working definition for "unit" (for what you need) either.

I know in English classes (which are really the only classes with sections like that) they are referred to in Katakana as Lesson X, section Y. So like Lesson 4 section 2.

Going for chapters and whatnot in 国語 or 数学, you would probably use -sho 一書、二書など. Depending on the book, you might also have a dai before that. 第一書など

レッスン1、レッスン2、レッスン3(Lesson)・・・・・(Lesson1、Lesson2、Lesson3)
1章、2章、3章(shou)・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・(Chapter1、Chapter2、Chapter3)
一部、2部、3部(bu)・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・(Part1、Part2、Part3)
1話、2話、3話(wa)・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・(story1、story2、story3)
1巻、2巻、3巻(kan)・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・(vol.1、vol.2、vol.3)

「レッスン1」は日本ではごくふつうに使われています。
強いて訳すなら「授業1(jyugyou)」とか「稽古1(keiko)」だと思いますが、見たことないです。
「部」とか「章」を使うのがいいのではないでしょうか
