The example given in the article elaborates that the sets have bounded range, e.g. for a given size N, the set’s values must range from 0 to mN for some m > 1.

The results therefore depend on both m and N.

Equivalently, you can pick the length of your range first and then pick a ‘density’ d, where d * length is the size of the set (this matches the formulation given in the article).
