Old man page maybe?  Here the relevent bits from mine (Mandrake 9.1)....

Mount options for tmpfs
       The  following  parameters  accept  a  suffix  k, m or g for Ki, Mi, Gi
       (binary kilo, mega and giga) and can be changed on remount.

              Override default size of the filesystem.  The size is  given  in
              bytes, and rounded down to entire pages.  The default is half of
              the memory.

              Set number of blocks.

              Set number of inodes.

       mode=  Set initial permissions of the root directory.
