 Currently relay bw limits can be set in 10**n based bytes per seconds.
 Standard in ISP industry is to use 2**n bits per second.

 Add alternative measurement units instead of KB/GB/MB defined:

 1 Mbit = 1024*1024/8 bytes/sec
 1 Kbit = 1024/8 bytes/sec
 1 Gbit = (1024^3^) /8 bytes/sec

 It will make bandwidth limit settings much easier to match bw limit given
 to you by ISP and you can easily compare it against graphs of traffic from

 Nobody is using 10 based bytes per second.
