Odoo 8 Reporting : Get data average instead of data sum

On odoo reporting, there is by default a total row giving the float or integer field sum, this field is on the measure selection box
There is necessarily a method allowing to do a sum operation (maybe using sum sql aggregate function), I want to override this method to allow me do a data average (maybe a svg sql aggeregate function) instead of sum, and just for one specified reporting (the one I'm developping), and not for all Odoo reportings.

Here is a picture that summarizes what I want to do.

To change that you just need to define group_operator = 'avg' in the measure field definition of the model class

So I should overwrite the measure field definition on the report model I'm using, then I can get the avg as a operator only for desired report ? on the other hand, I'm looking for the original measure field definition, on the models.py (ORM) but can't find it.

when I said measure field definition I really mean to say the definition of the field used as measure of the pivot table graph view that you need to group using avg, that field in your report model need to have the group_operator = 'avg'

@Axel, How can I change the 'total' string (see http://prntscr.com/9eexf9) in to 'average' ?

Please create another question for that, to explain all the steps of how to do it in an answer without mix things
