Let ( [
CTainer = Length(Container)
; Roundit = Precision];

Case(
CTainer ≥ 1073741824;Round ( (CTainer / 1073741824); Roundit ) & " GB";
CTainer ≥ 1048576;Round ( (CTainer / 1048576); Roundit ) & " MB";
CTainer ≥ 1024;Round ( (CTainer / 1024); Roundit ) & " KB";""
) )

P.S. ...because
1 KB = 1024 byte = 2^10 byte
1 MB = 1024 KB = 2^20 byte = 1048576 byte
1 GB = 1024 MB = 2^30 byte = 1073741824 byte
