Error in 17.9 Memory Disks

Davis Remmel
Hi, I would like to report an error with the docs in section 17.9.2 (https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/disks-virtual.html#disks-md-freebsd5).

There is a line that states, "To create a new file-backed memory disk, first allocate an area of disk to use. This example creates an empty 5K file named newimage". However, the following `dd` command shows a file of 5 _megabytes_ being created. This corroborates with the examples on the rest of the page, which means the '5K' should be changed to '5M' in the paragraph text.

Thanks,
Davis Remmel
