I don't think it needs an "int" line, it is added in arch/Kconfig
(which includes arch/kvx/Kconfig)

I think the "int" here can be removed, as done for
ARCH_MMAP_RND_BITS_MAX and ARCH_MMAP_RND_BITS_MIN

Ko stands for kilo-octet which is the french equivalent for kilo byte.
I've found more typos like this in the documentation and they will be
corrected as well.
