Is this a FE port? Did etherload detect it as a FE port or a 10Mbps port?
Try running with -d.

Note that etherload is monitoring the traffic on the ethernet by
'snooping', not really the traffic on your host's interface. In switched
LAN environments, it has limited usage.

Packet size cannot be guaranteed. Etherload is measuring bw by adding each
packet's actual size and dividing by time.
