8K means 8 x 1024 bits = 8192 bits.

RAM size generally mentioned in bits.

Such as 4K X 8, 8K X 8, 4K X 16, 8K X 16 likewise...

For example 8K X 16, a RAM which has 8K = 8192 memory locations, with each location storing a data word of "width" 16 bits, would be referred to as a RAM of size 8K X 16. The total storage capacity of this memory would therefore be 128KB, or simply a "128K" memory.

1k = 1024b,
8k =8 x 1024b =8192b,
1b = 8bits.
8192b = 8 x 8192 =65,536bits,
8k = 65,536 bits.
