And for now I just documented the capture

changing the implementation of the capture buffer size to SI units though,
if anyone thinks it makes more sense to do that.

Most if not all OSes will probably either require or prefer that the capture buffer size be a power of 2, and there's 
no good reason for it to be a multiple of a power of 10.
