If you scroll down it says about K as a prefix for salaries.
I don't know if this will help you find the answer..it's all double dutch to me !
K did come from the computing term in the 80's, I think it came with the yuppie era. So K although now meaning 1000 derived from 1024 bytes = 1K.
Of course in america because it was derived from this, some people tried to sue companies advertising 25K as salary, when they only got paid 25 x 1000 instead of 25 x 1024!!!! Now everyone accepts that K is 1000!
