There only is one single limit in this directive.

But it is possible to invent a new acl for this using the external acl
interface. request_body_max_size looks into the Content-Length request
header, available to external_acl_type as %{Content-Length}

This silly shell script should work

while read line; do
  set -- $line
  if [ "$length" -le "$2" ]; then
     echo OK
     echo ERR

Use this as

external_acl_type request_body %{Content-Length} /path/to/above/script

acl request_max_20MB request_body 20971520

This acl can then be used in http_access to match requests up to the given
size. If you need different sizes just define new acls with different
limits in bytes (20971520 == 20480 * 1024 == 20480 KB)
