A cubic meter is something 1 meter long by 1 meter wide by 1 meter high.

1 meter * 1 meter * 1 meter = 1 cubic meter

2 cubic meters could be:

2 meter * 1 meter * 1 meter = 2 cubic meter

Technically it could be any combination of lengths as long as all three dimensions multiplied together equals 2.

4 meters * 1 meter * 0.5 meter = 2 cubic meter

etc.

Example, i wanna buy microwave and interrior dimensions are [b]1.6 cu ft.[/b] (its cubic feet right?) is there way to say how much is actual Width/Height/Depth of 1.6 cu ft?



Second question, here we go again  
Oven Dimensions (W x H x D):     [b]18-7/16 x 10-15/16" x 18-1/2"[/b]
How i understand that?

You cant determine the dimensions based on just the volume. Since it could be any combination of dimensions as long as multiplying them together came out to 1.6

If you know two of the three dimensions, you can figure out the third though.

For your oven dimensions:
18 7/16 inches * 10 15/16 inches * 18 1/2 inches = 3730.7 cubic inches

3730.7 cubic inch = 2.16 cubic foot
