The first question is always - why bother?  The percentage is displayed in
the legend.  If you want it to represent graphically the percentage used,
you can set the unscaled[]:dwmy flag and make it display in proportion to
the total bandwidth while still preserving lots of additional useful

But, if you are convinced that throwing away information is good and that
your customers won't want the actual speed, then you should do something on
the order of:

# If a 56K line, then maxbytes was 7000...
target[percent]: 1:public at * 100 / 7000
options[percent]: nopercent
shortlegend[percent]: %
