You can also use "quota -r" to dump out the raw quota data.

Simple answer is, internally the quota system maintains its block counts 
by counting the # of blocks that would be returned by stat(2) in the
st_blocks field, which is the # of 512-byte blocks used by the file.
Externally, (e.g. what it displays, takes as input) is 1024-byte blocks counts.
