Then do not select JEDEC (as they are not default, and there will probably 
never be a GUI to enable them), and your problem is solved.

I've only mentioned in one place using JEDEC units specifically, and that was 
in relation to memory sizes (i.e. the unit JEDEC standardizes).  If that is 
your objection then please say so, otherwise I do not see what the technical 
problem is.
