Looking at the documentation I see:

    (possibly different) unit can also be specified explicitly.  Valid
    memory units are <literal>kB</literal> (kilobytes),
    <literal>MB</literal> (megabytes), and <literal>GB</literal>
    (gigabytes); valid time units are <literal>ms</literal>
    (milliseconds), <literal>s</literal> (seconds),
    <literal>min</literal> (minutes), <literal>h</literal> (hours),
    and <literal>d</literal> (days).  Note that the multiplier for
    memory units is 1024, not 1000.

The only value to being case-sensitive in this area is to allow
upper/lower case with different meanings, but I don't see us using that,
so why do we bother caring about the case?
