By Default, MRTG reports in Bytes.  You want to change this to bits by
adding it into your config file (global parameters):
Options[_]: bits

This will show 544.1kB/s as 4352.8kb (or 4.352Mb).  The config file may
still show the MAX speed as being 12500000 (representing Bytes), but your
graphs should reflect 100Mb.
