Position with respect to what? An IMU can use logged data points from its sensors to calculate the position it is at from turn-on up until a finite time later...that would be a double integral from the cleaned up accelerometer data.

Attitude position on the other hand is usually a combination of gyroscope/accelerometer/digital compass information and gives you the Roll/Tilt/Pitch/Yaw information through a PI control loop.
