[mrtg] Measurement Unit (automatically converts to k??)

Hi There,

I'm new to MRTG, and thanks to the wonderful setup guides, have been
able to get it to monitor my firewalls.  One of the variables I'm
graphing via SNMP is the total number of firewall connections.  It's
working fine, but it seems to convert the number into thousands.  For
example the value 17211 connections, becomes 17k.  That's true both on
the graph, and on the legend that includes max, average, current.

I read the mrtg-reference, but not sure where the solution lies.  Possibly kMG?

Here is a snippet of my config for this graph..
