"of 1024 bytes"? I don't know how this looks to a native speaker, but this
looks truncated to my French eyes if "bytes" is not there, same for the 2
other occurrences below.

Oh yeah, my geeky brain inferred the bytes part automaticaly when it saw the number 1024. Adding the "bytes" makes it more clear for not-so-geeky people :).

Eric, could you please add "bytes" to the appropriate places to make it more clear.
