Well, there is the partition table reading, which is in the file i
wrote, and the normal partition accessing, that is the reading of the
file system. But i think i now understand what you meant, the values i
read from the partition list will be multiplied by two before being put
into the partition data (and constraints and so on) and divided by two
before being accessed to write to the partition list.

I still think having a way to specify sector size, and not fix it to 512
would be nice.

Yep, i have battled with it enough to know perfectly what it means.
