You're right. I forgot about magnitude. The force of gravity diminishes with increasing distance from the source. The force due to acceleration remains the same throughout the accelerated region. Measure the magnitude of the force at the floor and ceiling. If they are equal, you are experiencing constant acceleration. If the floor is greater than the ceiling, you are experiencing gravity.
