It should be in the FAQ...

cache_mem indicates only the memory that should be used by Squid for
"hot" objects (frequently requests objets, which are worth caching in
RAM). Real memory consumption is always larger, sometimes three times as
much (it depends on many things. specially on the size of the *disk*
cache because the larger it is, the larger are the data structures which
describe it, structures which are in Squid's memory...).

Use cache manager's "info" to see where memory goes.
