argh, that renaming from BLOCKS to N was done in v8.15-38-g140eca1,
and I added the documentation for N again in v8.17-26-g4f2e9d5
without noticing that. Sorry for that.

BLOCKS is still mentioned in coreutils.texi.
Here's the fix:

diff --git a/doc/coreutils.texi b/doc/coreutils.texi

+The numeric-valued strings above (@var{n} and @var{bytes})
 can be followed by a multiplier: @samp{b}=512, @samp{c}=1,
 @samp{w}=2, @address@hidden@var{m}, or any of the
 standard block size suffixes like @samp{k}=1024 (@pxref{Block size}).
