Not quite, I think I may have misunderstood your question, sorry.
When tempo mode is on, the Speed knob on the top row is the is the period, or length of 1 cycle of the wave, in musical terms. For instance, if you set the tempo to 120 beats per minute and the Speed to 1/4, each cycle of the wave will last for a quarter note. The box assumes that a quarter note = 1 beat, so therefore you will have 120 cycles of the wave a minute or a frequency of 2.0 Hz.
All of the items on that list are musical note lengths, the ones with a dot after them are dotted notes, the ones with a t after them are triplets (3 notes per division), so if you wanted to think of them all as fractions of a measure it would be:
WHLt (10.66/16 = 3 of these every 2 whole notes)
1/4* (6/16 = 3/8)
1/2t (5.33/16 = 3 of these every whole note)
1/8 * (3/16)
1/4t (2.66/16 = 3 if these every quarter note)
Everything I said in the previous post applies to the modrate knob on the bottom row. Sorry for the confusion.
