IMHO, an average (median) swap request is probably about 2-4K for Squid.
The "magic" 15-20K is for _mean_ network _transfer_ size measured by
counting every entry in the access log. The actual median transfer size is
smaller than 4K in reality. Median [cached] _file_ size is usually less
than 4K too:
Look under "Transfer Sizes" and "File Sizes".

You might want to consider that when setting your "store_avg_object_size"
as well as the interleaving factor for CCD.
