volume of pyramid  =  (1/3)(area of base)(height)

Let right triangle  ABC  be the pyramid base and  HD  be the height.

Let's find the edge length of the cube.

volume of cube  =  (edge length)3

1  =  (edge length)3

1  =  edge length

Let's find the area of right triangle ABC .

area of triangle ABC  =  (1/2)(AB)(BC)

area of triangle ABC  =  (1/2)(1)(1)

area of triangle ABC  =  1/2

HD  is an edge of the cube so

HD  =  1

volume of pyramid  =  (1/3)(area of triangle ABC)(HD)

volume of pyramid  =  (1/3)(1/2)(1)

volume of pyramid  =  1/6      cubic units
