Something that are 6KiB, will show 6000 bytes.
This is a vague bug report - is the issue generally not using human-friendly units? That's because QML's Locale type has no formatter for it, the QML wrapper around KLocale's method was removed in KF5 and it's not economical to do this leg work in Folder right now.
Hopefully QML's Locale stuff will improve in the future.

Yes, it's not human-friendly units. Actually the Folder View is only going to be used by humans, for the moment.
The fact that we can't fix it now doesn't mean this is not a problem.
I have a patch ready, waiting for Eike to approve.
