[mrtg] kMG option clarification needed...

I am trying to monitor my Exchange Server's In/Out traffic counters. The
OIDs are:
. (imsTotalInboundKilobytes)
. (imsTotalOutboundKilobytes)

As implied by name, the values read are in KByte. I got everything set up
allright and I get the values read...
Only MRTG assumes it reads bytes by default... I know it can be changed by
using the kMG[ezwf] directive, and I read both official/unofficial faq and
docs. Either I am terribly stupid or the explanations are somewhat cryptic;
either way, I can't seem to grasp the correct syntax; every example given
puts multiple prefixes on the line.

I want MRTG to assume it gets KB. Can someone explain it to me, please?

If a man speaks in the forest and there is no woman to hear him, is he still
