I will just mention that I opened the ultimate documentation for rsync
(the source), and it says that the default block size is the rounded
square root of the file's size. This means that your 64KB blocks are
considerably smaller than what rsync would use if you didn't force it
(which is about 740KB, much closer to my 1MB suggestion than to your
64KB actual use).
If I were you, I'd try to remove the "--block-size" option, and see what
