The SI-prefixes (kilo, mega, giga, ...) are defined for multiples to the base 10. Although they sometimes are used also for multiples to the base 2, for these only the specially defined prefixes like kibi, mebi or gibi are correct. The value in this converter are given for bytes, however, they may be used for bits also.
