‘Enable BigQuery API’ for Pricing settings under Billing Export

In addition to enabling Daily cost details, should I also enable BigQuery API for Pricing settings as well ? What is SKU?

A SKU is essentially a billable line item on your invoice, such as Compute Engine or Cloud Storage. ‘SKU’ stands for Stock Keeping Unit (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stock_keeping_unit).

In this context, the price that you’re paying for each SKU (product or service) on your invoice will be exported to BigQuery. If you’re curious, go ahead and export this data too, just to see what it looks like in BigData and how you might query it.
