Turbo linux 7 sems to be agreeing with Curtis,

bi: ブロックデバイスに送られたブロック (blocks/s)。
bo: ブロックデバイスから受け取ったブロック (blocks/s)。

Sorry it's in Japanese but bi says "blocks sent to block device" and bo is "blocks received from block device".

I don't know that much about it but the actual output seems to suggest that the man page is wrong. I find it just the slightest bit amusing that such errors in the docs should be translated faithfully when translating invariably introduces errors of it's own ;)
