rsync prints units not conistent. As shown in a typical output like in
* to follow SI prefix standard  and add a single space between the value and the unit:
3.13G -> 3.13 GB
* to note all units in a unique way:
now it is "K bytes/sec" and "kB/s"
* to chose between binary IEC  units and SI units (perhaps ask the user for an option? --iec --si) and wite a short note in the man page like 1 kB = 1000 Byte
or 1 KiB = 1024 B.
* to note "seconds" with the SI symbol "s"
