parted.Device has a getSize() method that already covers this one.  You
can even pass it a unit to return the size in, MB by default.

parted.Device.getSize returns the size of the entire device -- we need
to be able to convert an arbitrary number of sectors to a size.

Rather than on parted.Device, this could just be a utility method at the
parted module level.
