This is the python bindings bug. From the code:

http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt.git;a=blob;f=python/libvirt-override.c;h=e659bae30ad01b315041e29913fb442c348ed0f6;hb=HEAD#l2846

We are shifting the mem amount left 10 times (effectively divide it by
1024). Hence you'll get MB instead of KB. Although I am not quite sure
how to fix this. I see two options:

1) fix the code (possibly breaking other applications already relying on
the bug)

2) document it as known bug (not consistent with C struct)
