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[1], the QML wrapper around KLocale's method[2] 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.
