dd blocks/bytes at a time

On both the dd man and Info pages, we see
              copy only BLOCKS input blocks
OK, but one must use ones brain, heavens forbid, to figure out that
e.g., these

              force ibs=BYTES and obs=BYTES

              read BYTES bytes at a time

change the block size. Because you don't say that that is what they
do. You just say "bytes at a time", and the user has to figure out the
connection to BLOCKS and them.
