It's a side effect of locale (yay!) with humanize_number(3). The decimal
point is a comma in my locale. For C/POSIX, you get the dot:
$ export LC_ALL=C
$ ./dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null bs=1024 count=1
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
1024 bytes (1.0 KB) transferred in 0.001 secs (999 KB/sec)
This happens to all consumers of humanize_number(3); ls and df come to
mind, but they are probably others too.
