How do you want to limit the download size(per a day, month basis)?, reply_body_max_size means users cant download more than 10Mb size file at a time but they can download less 10mb files, I dont think we can limit bandwidth for individual users using squid by simple configuration. However refer the following link there are some ideas.

reply_body_max_size 10 MB
