Storage is assigned and protected in 4K units. In other words, 4K, 8K, 12K and so on. That's why the REGION value is rounded to a 4K multiples.

AFAIK, It's not a rule.

quoting from he JCL bible
valueK
Specifies the required storage in kilobytes (1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes). The value is 1 through 7 decimal numbers, from 1 through 2096128. Code a multiple of 4. For example, code REGION=68K. If the value you code is not a multiple of 4, the system will round it up to the next multiple of 4.

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
