Umm, I think you have a problem with mixed units. You need to think in terms
of the current coming out of the secondary of the coil as being proportional
to the input current. They will be related by the number of turns on the
secondary (think of the primary as being one turn, and remember you cannot
have part turns on a toroid).

What temperature range will you have? I have some doubts you will manage
that many digits of measurement precision without some fancy temperature
handling. You also do not say what your current range is.
