Specify replication bandwidth limit in kbps
Units appear to be wrong for the bandwidth limit in both the UI (both main Replication Tasks screen & task edit screen) as well as the documentation. UI & documentation specify kB/s however testing seems to indicate this should be kbps.
How I tested:
Created a new dataset with a 3.1 Gb compressed file.
Created a new snapshot.
Created a new replication task with limit = 300,000.
Timed the replication to be approximately 90s (this was over gigabit ethernet).
Did the math: 300,000 kilobits / s * 90 s = 27,000,000 kilobits = 3375000 kB = 3.2 Gb - close enough for me

Steven: to clarify, did you try in the old UI, the new UI, or both?
This was in the old UI, however I just tried the beta UI and it has the same incorrect information both in the field label (KB/s) and in the help hover text (kilobytes/second). Should be, I believe, (kbps) and (kilobits/second), respectively. The Guide also has the incorrect units.

Storage:Replication Tasks -> Limit (kbps) (Is a column)

Legacy docs do not refer to kbps see RepTaskLegacyDocs-2018-06-25.png
