NanoBSD: How to change sizes of /etc, /var

Assalam o Alaikum!

I want to make a build of nanobsd with these sizes of /etc (10MB) , /var (20MB), /usr (151 MB), / (206MB).

How can I do this? I have an option in source


What is meant by 10240? is it 10240KB or 10240MB?

Can I change above parameters to achieve desire size? if yes then how?

And what about /usr, and / sizes? these options are not available in
