How did you measure it on Windows?  I suspect what's happening is that
Windows gave you the actual sum of the sizes of all the files, whereas
du(1) counts the space *used* by all the files.  In other words, the
Windows tool is giving a count in bytes, whereas du(1) is giving a
count in disk blocks (rounded up to the nearest block, because that
space is unavailable for other files to use).
