That should have been MiB not KiB.

The wiki states that 160MiB is the minimum for Ubiquity, this is true if you have a separate video card.  For a machine with on-board video more memory is required, probably 192 MiB.  The same appears to be true for the alternate installer.  80MiB with on-board video and 64 MiB with a separate card, although that is still running after 4hrs!
