    Disambiguated use of term “kilobyte” · 6bfea2b3

    After being confused by headerdoc use of the word
    “kilobyte”, I did a bit of an audit:
    - changed many comments to use kibibyte and also
    added the number 1024
    - noted that one function returns bytes, unlike many
    other functions with same name that return kibibytes
    - changed some default value initializations
    that were a mix of power 2 and power 10 ex:
    vtkPImageWriter called “1 gigabyte” = 1000000 kibibytes,
    changed to power 2 since that’s prevailing in VTK
    Although many don’t like the binary prefixes,
    they have the advantage of being unambiguous.
