Update/rework panel option "Use SI size units"

With the advent of #3666 the panel option "Use SI size units" does not properly document the behavior. As layed out in #3666:

  • the option does not say what will happen when this option is disabled
  • There are no SI units used here at all because byte is not a SI unit. Only SI prefixes are used with #3666.

The label should either be changed to "Use SI prefixes instead of IEC ones" (which reflects the correct terms and new reality) or better to "Size prefix style: [IEC, SI]".

It is to be discussed whether C code and config ini will be changed accordingly or mapped for maximum compat.
