 QPACK defines two settings which are included in the HTTP/QUIC SETTINGS frame.
-  : An integer with a maximum value of 2^30 - 1.  The default value is 4,096
+  : An integer with a maximum value of 2^30 - 1.  The default value is zero
     bytes.  See {{table-dynamic}} for usage.

This is an interesting question.  [Section 2.2.2 of QPACK-03]( begins as follows:

>  The size of the dynamic table is the sum of the size of its entries.
>  The size of an entry is the sum of its name's length in octets (as defined in Section 5.1.2), its value's length in octets, and 32.

My reading of this is that the table size is measured in octets.
