Units are mentioned in the tooltip. Surely it'll be nice to have units
somewhat more visible, but this is a bit bigger topic. For example, next
question would be: what are the units for the muxing rate in the encoding
settings. Something to llok into for the UI team perhaps.

Default values are conservative and should be aligned with the minimum
requirements we're setting on the hardware [1]. Current minimum is 2Gb
machine. Bumping cache size limit will left yuo in the situation when all
the memory is being used by the case and you'll start to have terrible
swapping and slowdown.
