But in the documentation, it says that there can be 2*checkpoint_segments +
1 xlog files at a time. Since I have configured the only 1
checkpoint_segments....there should be a maximum of only 3 xlog files taking
only 48 MB, not 4 taking 65MB.

Not quite.  the docs say 16M per file.  4 files * 16M = 64M

pgsql/data contains one folder for each database you created.  To further
reduce space here, you'll need to drop tables and/or databases.
