Basing on irc discussions and questions about reading xfs_info output
I've added example in xfs_growfs manpage.

This is 2nd version of manpage patch which contains fixes provided by
Alex Elder.

( just in case gmail will eat formatting, patch is attached )

+Here, the data section of the output indicates "bsize=4096",
+meaning the data block size for this filesystem is 4096 bytes.
+This section also shows "sunit=32 swidth=128 blks", which means
+the stripe unit is 32*4096 bytes = 128 kibibytes and the stripe
+width is 128*4096 bytes = 512 kibibytes.
+A single stripe of this filesystem therefore consists
+of four stripe units (128 blocks / 32 blocks per unit).
