 Suggest this layout:

 Disks:        ld0     sd0     dk0     sd1
 xfers          10                       4
 K-bytes R    6551                    4180
 K-bytes W    1234      929           7333
 % busy

Note that by changing the measure to "K-bytes R" or or written, the
'K' sufix is not needed when displaying the numbers.
