I suggest the following procedure.
Open the *.TXT file in CALC, ticking "Separated by" and "Space" boxes. Should produce spreadsheet with Numeric values in Column A and Text (either MB or KB) in column B.
In Cell C1 put =IF(B1="MB",A1*1000,A1)
Copy Cell C1 down to bottom of table.
Save as *.odt file
