Update calls to formatSize to adjust to new units
Follow up of #22175.
The references and documentation in the following file should be updated to reflect the new feature: typo3/sysext/t3editor/res/tsref/tsref.xml
The label for "byteSizeUnits" should be updated in typo3/sysext/lang/locallang_common.xlf to use the IEC prefixes. (Ki Mi …)
The constant value and comment of constant
styles.content.uploads should be updated typo3/sysext/css_styled_content/static/constants.txt to reflect the new feature and use "iec" as default.

Okay, I expect IEC by default because it is an industry standard and helps differentiate between base ten and base two units. Also as follow up to previous request (#22175) for consistency.
However after some reflection and reading it really happens the awareness of this standard had failed to reach people.
Still, in fact, like #69380, size formatting throughout the backend should use some default and the labels should not be defined each times, for consistency. And configurable ones.
Whereas we finally choose the "legacy" ones (base 2 with K M …),
iec ones or
Maybe a "legacy" keyword specifying the same prefix as
si but with base two?

As previously noted, we won't cahnge to "new" ;) units that still have not become the default.
As for using the same units everywhere:
Basically, the core uses the "byteSizeUnits" everywhere possible - with the exception of the bytes view helper which needed a slightly different list - however, even that is using the same type of units.
So I consider the basic request in this ticket superfluous and the bug as solved and will close the issue.
