I've just committed a change to v1.40 to accept KiB and MiB. I did
briefly make it accept 'kb' too but it was going to give you an erase
size of 256 * 1000 / 8 == 32000 bytes, which probably isn't useful... so
then I was going to have to add a warning for such erase sizes... so I
took it out again :)
