I notice some people tend to confuse the whole number of cpus used by their host to run the project with the real number of cpus used in the virtual machine.

In the preference account : the parameter Max#Cpu (Max # of CPUs for this project)
defines the size of the VM where, for the moment, atlas tasks are running.

Would it be possible to change the sentence to Max # of CPUs for a Virtual Machine or to Max # of CPUs for a job ?

Being more accurate can avoid bad settings to new-comers.

The concept of a Job is confusing to me as well it took me a while to get my head around it.

There is some interesting bug/features on GitHub these controls.
