> {{DatabaseDescriptor}} has several functions that convert between user supplied sizes
in KB/MB and bytes. These are implemented without much consistency and, while unlikely, several
have the potential to overflow since validation on the input is missing. Meanwhile, some widen
the number to a long correctly. Options include: widening in all places or simply doing better
validation on start up — currently only the lower bound of the valid range is checked for
many of these fields.
> List of Affected {{DatabaseDescriptor}} Methods:
>  * {{getColumnIndexSize}}
>  * {{getColumnIndexCacheSize}}
>  * {{getBatchSizeWarnThreshold}}
>  * {{getNativeTransportFrameBlockSize}}
>  * {{getRepairSessionSpaceInMegabytes}}
>  * {{getNativeTransportMaxFrameSize}}
