Perhaps changing the table title?
Table 17-2. Configuration parameters affecting PostgreSQL's shared memory
usage when not using a size modified.
Alternatively, below the table we could have clarifications such as:
Previously, it was not possible to indicate a size modified such as M for
Megabytes. As of version X.Y, Postgresql allows to use M, for MB, GB for GB
and more... See.... for all values.
When not using one of the new modifiers the space used would be the number
you enter times the constant on the right side of the table.
For example using 100 shared_buffers would be 100 x 8400 = 840,000 bytes.
