--progress=dot:giga on wget 1.17.1 outputs 32 dots per line where each dot represents 1MB downloaded.

The cumulative total at the left of each line is in KB. I would find MB easier to understand. It matches up with the dots and better matches the scale of GigaByte files. I still often have download speeds measured in KB/sec but I don't recall ever comparing download speed to the cumulative total on the the left.

I would ask that you at least consider this for wget2. I personally don't have any programs that read this column of wget output so I would be fine if it changes in the current wget1 but I would understand if you consider it an API that you don't want to break.
