For single-end reads, FPKM and RPKM are the same thing. For paired-end reads, only FPKMs are useful, so cufflinks just sticks to that term.

I think this comment is actually the answer, so you might consider promoting it to an answer so that the original poster can accept it.

True, I've copied it into an answer. Do you know if there's otherwise a way to actually move a comment to an answer? That'd be handy.

I copy-and-paste and then delete the comment, but in this case, I'd just leave it.
