1 cup = 250 ml

For all liquid ingredients:
1 cup of water = 250 ml
1 cup of milk = 250 ml
and so on.

FlourThings get complicated for the solid ingredients:

1 cup flour = 125g
1 cup whole wheat flour = 120g
1 cup sugar = 200g(about 220g brown sugar)
1 cup butter = 200g
1 cup honey = 350g

1 cup pumpkin pulp = 245g
1 cup breadcrumbs = 110g
1 cup oatmeal = 90g
1 cup grated parmesan = 225g

VegetablesSliced vegetables can be also measured in cups, the best thing here is to use common sense, but to get an idea:

1 cup diced celery = about 4 stalks

1 cup diced cucumber = about half cucumber
1 cup peas = about 100g

Please consider that there are too many variations to estabilish an exact conversion for most of then ingredients, however this guide should help you.
