Is default-tab-width a emacs function?

Which is correct?
(setq default-tab-width 4)
(setq-default tab-width 4)
I got these in two web sites.

From emacs window:
C-h f and default-tab-width ,no match
C-h f and tab-width,no match

How would to get info about it in emacs documentation/manual?

That is actually part of the emacs manual.

Do you ever bother to google stuff?
