We all know its quite hard to estimate what a sum of money can ultimately get invested into and what value it will return, so I would've preferred them to give a lot more broad strokes in what more money invested in the projects gets you. Something like, we'll be adding a whole new region and we'll put in as much content as the budget allows.
I understand what you mean, it does sound a bit odd, but ultimately I don't think the goals are meant to precisely quantify the cost of each additional feature.

My guess is that considering how quickly they got funded, they are probably projecting somewhere in the range of several million dollars in total and simply needed to put together some short term stretch goals that would be fun for players and serve as sort of milestones for the funding.

Hopefully they will have some more exciting stuff as they exceed 2m and 3m, which seems very likely.
