This wouldn't be core functionality so if we were to do that
it would be better in numfmt I think. For example you can get ls -lh
functionality now with numfmt like:

  \ls -l | numfmt --header --field=5 --to=si

Looking at my numfmt TODO here I see this pertinent item:

  Have numfmt --format='%f ' put a space between number and auto units
