You see when you read the image using imread, what you have in hand is a RGB matrix or binary matrix depending on the image read. The data has the pixel values of the image and these are numbers either in double or uint. When you type whos matlab shows the Bytes size of this matrix. The sizes which you are comparing are obviously different. If you want to get the size of image in matlab...try
info = dir('my image')
info will be a structure, check bytes there. This is the size which you are looking.

Correct. This is the purpose of the whos command. It shows the memory used for storing a variable. This is the number of elements multiplied by the number of bytes per element. For cells this is the number of elements multiplied by the byte size of a pointer.
Therefore the size shown by whos is expected to be larger than the number of elements.
If you want to get the size in pixels, use size. If you want the file size, see KSSV's answer.
