yeah, around 1.8 or so it starts to go to K.

Yes, per the manual (available at:

Change the default multiplier prefixes (,k,M,G,T,P). In the tag
ShortLegend define only the basic units. Format: Comma seperated list of
prefixed. Two consecutive commas or a comma at start or end of the line
gives no prefix on this item. Note: If you do not want prefixes, then
leave this line blank.

Example: velocity in nm/s (nanometers per second) displayed in nm/h.

 ShortLegend[ezwf]: m/h
 kMG[ezwf]: n,u,m,,k,M,G,T,P
 options[ezwf]: perhour
