At the moment I suspect it would be a matter of changing the axes xlabel()

I tried to use xlabel('text'), but the output label is: text (seconds). I wish I could delete the "seconds".
I need to compute the system response for a square wave input.
num = [37.5 13875 1125000]; den = [2.45 38.125 6205 1125000];
G = tf(num,den);
t = 1:0.01:5;
sq_wave = 0.01*square(2*pi*0.3.*t,50);
%% plot the response
The plot goes automatically with the x label "Time (seconds)".
Matlab sets automatically the unit seconds.

You can try to save and re-plot the output of the graph, then use xlabel to solve your problem.
Hope that's helpful!
