I think because -h supposes BLOCKSIZE=1 so to speak, while -s
uses BLOCKSIZE=$BLOCKSIZE. So (to me) they're either exclusive
flags, or there's a need for a 2nd size display - one displaying
the 'humanized' number of 'bytes' and the other one displaying..
what ? 'humanized' number of 'blocks' (not sure 1.2M isn't too
misleading there), or plain number of blocks ?
