pvdisplay manpage incorrectly says kilobyte when it is really a count of 512b blocks

Bug Description

when using the -c output of pvdisplay the man page says the value of the third column is " * physical volume size in kilobytes"

It is not. The value is the size of the physical volume in 512byte blocks.

This could lead an admin (me) to doing the wrong match and destroying filesystems with LVM2 as a result.
