What do you mean by only k m as output.. Do you want the only the first field if before "==" then
echo "whateveroutput" +awk |F[=][=] '{print $1}'

F[=][=]: command not found

If you really just want to display only:
k m

the script:
echo k m

will do what you want. If you're trying to create a filter that will extract some data from the output of another script, you need to give us a much better description of what you're trying to do.

Assuming you're using a POSIX conforming shell, try:
while read -r line
do      printf "%s\n" "${line%%==*}"

your_output | awk -F'=' '{print $1}'
