Summary:  Documentation for '-printf %k' insufficient

Original Submission:  

This is Debian bug http://bugs.debian.org/208307

find's info documentation has just these expanations for %s and %k:

|  %k     File's size in 1K blocks (rounded up).

|  %s     File's size in bytes.

which imho fails to convey that %k reports the amount of disk space used by the 
file instead of just %s divided by size-of-block.

I'd suggest copying the respective explanation from GNU file/coreutils' info 
manual for ls -s.
