You're on the right track. This is not very elegant, but it works:
My words column is named, originally enough, #words. I add a custom column as follows:
Column heading: 1000 words
Type: Column built from other columns
This gives you a plain number of thousands. Since the float is truncated by a regular expression you can add whatever suffix you want, for instance to get 100K you'd replace '\..*','' above with '\..*','K' or '\..*',' thousands'.
If you want a prefix it's also possible by using the re() function as an argument in a strcat.
