They are very similar to the kpathsea texmf.cnf variables, so
the texinfo documentation of kpathsea should help.

Unfortunately not as far as I can remember. For Debian I always patched
the values we need to have set into texmfcnf.lua. Other distributions
might have forgotten that, though.
It is a pity that texmfcnf.lua does not support layered configuration,
similar to updmap, fmtutil, and even texmf.cnf ...
