From squid-2.3.STABLE3 squid.conf:

# TAG: reply_body_max_size (KB)
# This option specifies the maximum size of a reply body. It
# can be used to prevent users from downloading very large files,
# such as MP3's and movies. The reply size is checked twice.
# First when we get the reply headers, we check the
# content-length value. If the content length value exists and
# is larger than this parameter, the request is denied and the
# user receives an error message that says "the request or reply
# is too large." If there is no content-length, and the reply
# size exceeds this limit, the client's connection is just closed
# and they will receive a partial reply.
# NOTE: downstream caches probably can not detect a partial reply
# if there is no content-length header, so they will cache
# partial responses and give them out as hits. You should NOT
# use this option if you have downstream caches.
# If you set this parameter to zero (the default), there will be
# no limit imposed.
#reply_body_max_size 0
