[mrtg] Bytes vs Bits - old hash

One of those pounded topics, but by default or on most of my graphs, things
show up in either MBytes or kB/s.  I know that 12.5MBytes is 100Mbits.  Do
most of you who manage networks look at connections in Bytes?  I mean when I
look at a 10/100 hub, I think 10Mb/100Mb hub or switch, not 1250.0
kBytes/12.5Mbytes hub or switch.

When I look at a Router with a T1, I see the serial port as 1.544 Mb not

When running cfmaker, what would I put in the command line to make
everything read Mbits or Kbits?  Both the Max speed and the speed shown
under the graphs.  One reason is I have people that look at these graphs and
understand when you talk about a 10/100 Mb hub or switch, but when they see
Max speed 12.5MBytes, they don't understand.
