How do I determine the size of kernel block?

view story

http://serverfault.com – I need to find out what the kernel block size is from vmstat output. I am specifically looking for kernel block size as defined in Block devices and block sizes. There it says all Linux blocks are currently 1024 bytes, but this is not true for old kernels. Is there a command I can use to view the kernel block size? (HowTos)
