Is 4MB (4096k) PE Size really 4096000 or is it 4,194,303?

The default PE size for creating LV's is 4MB, is this an SI indication? If I convert 4MB into Binary and take make all the 0's into 1's (bits allocated) I come up with 4,194,303. So what is the real PE Size?

It should be

4 * 1024 * 1024 bytes

ikb=1024 bytes
1MB=1024 * 1024 bytes

which should be 4,194,304
