When I was running i.atcorr for Sentinel2 data, I used range=1,10000 (i.e.
the min/max theoretical values the input data can reach).
As for rescale, this in my understanding just sets what the output range of
the reflectances will be. So you can use for example 1-255, 0-1, 1-10000,
whatever suits best to your further analysis. Relatively, the result will
be identical.

Hope that helps a bit!
