According to the international standards, kilo is always abbreviated as "k"
(lowercase), not as "K" (uppercase). For Mega and Giga however the uppercase
symbols "M" and "G" are used.

For byte a capital "B" is used, for bit a lowercase "b". (so that's ok !)

This bug contradicts bug 124336.
k means exactly 1000. While the correct term in computer terms would have been
KiB, it's a standard noone use. KB is decided as second best. 
Please join the discussion in mentioned bugs if there are sides to this that
needs clarification.
