I'm guessing that there's more than one reason.

It's not going to be "because the bits of wood fly towards you" because they
do that on the bottom of the blade.

I assume that a big reason is because if the chain snags on the bottom,
momentum takes the chainsaw away from you. Whereas if it snags on the top,
the entire mess comes towards you rapidly.
