As you say it just refers to a unit. I think that the description and the reference to being 3 to 6 ranks deep convinced me that infantry were intended, but it is not explicit.
If I were doing irregular cossacks in 28mm I think I might be tempted to base them individually so that they could be deployed in Skirmish order or closed up as Warband or Line. A bit like Light Cavalry work in Hail Caesar.
My cavalry tend to be in units of twelve. I don't fancy having to do units of 16 - 18 for cossacks. Options are bigger bases with fewer figures or fewer figures individually based so they can be spread out a bit. I think I prefer the latter. Of course BP is a game of units where frontages are the only important characteristic. Numbers of figures and depths are largely cosmetic.
BP's flexibility is one of its great strengths

Re Warband. If you look at page 169 in BP the Baggara cavalry are listed as Warband, fielded in units of 12 figures. Looking at the photographs they appear to be deployed in two ranks of six. Hadn't noticed that before until Hobbitmiles pointed it out to me today.
