In figure 23 of the datasheet the data is 1011 1101 1101 1110. How does it
match the –10.377g? The X-axis range is +/-70g and it is 14 bits resolution.
Based on this, the sensitivity should be 140/16384=8.54mg. However, the
sensitivity in the datasheet is 17.125mg.


We are actually changing the description on the datasheet.  There are a number
of factors that go into selecting the sensitivity (mg/LSB) for these devices. 
For the iSensor parts, it is probably not safe to assume that sensitivity =
range/number of codes.  It isn't true very often
