Atari GEMDOS and Atari partition programs always use 2 sectors per
cluster. Since FAT16 can hold max 32k entries you can compute the rest
of information from this (example: 63 MB partition needs 2 kB clusters
to fit into 32k cluster limit so the logical sector size for 32-63 MB
partition needs to be 1 kB).

See above - 2 logical sectors in a cluster. That is actually the only
difference from MS-DOS where they stick with fixed logical sector size
and are adding more sectors to a cluster, IIRC.
