I'd be tempted to have the perfdata output as MB, but with no units (ie just the number). Thee days, it's hard to find a hard disk who's size (in bytes) isn't a very large number !
Also, remember that you need to allow up to a couple of step periods before you have valid data. If you'd just increased the numbers by 2^20, that's a big step and may well have exceeded the upper bounds on rate - or if there had been a gap there may well have been unknowns in the database. So allow at least 2xstep value (assuming you have a consolidation @ 1step resolution) before expecting valid data.
