Caps are marked in pF.

104J is 100,000 pF 5% tolerance.

4K7 is 4.7 pF 10% tolerance.

And 20K should be 20 pF 10% tolerance.

Like color codes the first digit is the first significant digit, the second digit is the second significant digit, the third digit is the multiplier, and the alpha is the tolerance except in small caps under 100 pF then the tolerance is in the decimal place.

Could it be a 20pf capacitor with the k standing for a certain tolerance?
