This is because 兆 is too ambiguous. In some cases it means 1,000,000 and in other cases it means 10^(12) (One Million) depending on whether it's used in mainland China or not. In mainland China 兆 is now considered to mean 百万, while in Taiwan and other countries it means 10^(12). Since that graphic you posted is presumably from the mainland, using 兆 would be incorrect.
