+All the numerical options, if not specified otherwise, accept in input
+a string representing a number, which may contain one of the
+International System number postfixes, for example 'K', 'M', 'G'.
+If 'i' is appended after the postfix, powers of 2 are used instead of
+powers of 10. The 'B' postfix multiplies the value for 8, and can be
+appended after another postfix or used alone. This allows using for
+example 'KB', 'MiB', 'G' and 'B' as postfix.
