Clean up unit prefixes for binary multiples in comments and prints
Change comments and prints that are referring to values based on binary multiples to use IEC 80000-13 prefixes for binary multiples rather than SI prefixes for decimal multiples (e.g., KiB, MiB, and GiB rather than KB, MB, and GB). Includes a fix for the rate_min print that was printing "KB/s" although it was really printing bytes per second. Includes a fix for goptions confusing the PB and TB units (while changing them to PiB and TiB). Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@fb.com>

The --alloc-size switch allows one to use a larger pool size for smalloc.
If running large jobs with randommap enabled, fio can run out of memory.
Smalloc is an internal allocator for shared structures from a fixed size
