Can I manually set the measurement value in the plasmashell Global Progress Indicator windows?

I’ve an approximately 49.7 GiB file to download. KGet uses whichever measurement is most concise based upon the currently downloaded amount, rather than a fixed measurement type of KiB/s or MiB/s.

This is usually adequate, especially when using a quick internet connection, but because I need to be able to ascertain whether the download has stalled, I need to force the 21.2 GiB already downloaded to be displayed in MiB/s or KiB/s.

Is this possible? I don’t see any option in KGet (not that I would be opposed to setting it there) but this isn’t the sole program I’ve had this issue with, so I’ve specified “Global Progess Indicator” not entirely due to the X/Y problem.
