Difference in the number of cells between ParaView and checkMesh

I'm comparing the efficiency of different snappyHexMesh meshes and to do so I'm paying attention to the number of cells of the mesh. And I made the weird discovery that checkMesh and ParaView don't agree on the number of cells of the mesh!
For example, for the same mesh, the Statistics inspector of ParaView gives 3.995.096 cells:
While the checkMesh result gives 1.105.136 cells:
Create time Create polyMesh for time = 0 Time = 0 Mesh stats points: 1593493 faces: 3707462 internal faces: 3262532 cells: 1105136 faces per cell: 6.3069106 boundary patches: 3 point zones: 0 face zones: 0 cell zones: 0
And any explanations for this huge difference? I have compared several meshes and the ratio is typically around 4 in favor of ParaView everytime.
