As a side note... there is a very nice calculator, Qalculate!, in the
Universe repo that has a menu setting for enabling SI prefixes:

    * Supports all SI units and prefixes (including binary), as well as
imperial and other unit systems

Example, select Gibyte & multiply by two and the result converts to
~2.15 gigabytes
Units|Prefixes shows them all as well.
