Actually, if you want to nitpick on something like this, the correct indication should be MiB anyway. See

Another note on this: in French, the word "octet" is used, so using MB globally and language independently would be plain wrong anyway. For French, it's "Mo", or, using the correct 1024-base, "Mio".

This should be fixed in the translations I guess

It's not a translation issue, after a check in the code it's a value gotten from PHP, see the code below:

Filename: \repository\content_object\document\php\lib\form\content_object.class.php

$post_max_size = (Filesystem :: interpret_file_size(ini_get('post_max_size')) < Filesystem :: interpret_file_size(ini_get('upload_max_filesize')) ? ini_get('post_max_size') : ini_get('upload_max_filesize'));

I suggest to add a translation variable to "add" another character for each language, "B" for dutch, "o" for french, etc.
