[GRASS-dev] r.watershed flow option

Maybe I am overlooking it but the man page for r.watershed does not say what units 
the option "flow" should be in - I am guessing it is fraction of 1 (or percent given as decimal - e.g. 50% will be 0.5)

so should flow amount  read as fraction or something like that, so that if
all rainfall turns to runoff = 1
only 50% rainfall turns to runoff (rest is captured by vegetation or infiltrates) = 0.5

am I understanding it correctly? if yes should some explanation go into manual?
