I want to use MAX17498 in boost mode.

I have a problem setting the slope compensation. The slope (as I understand) is the gradient of the inductor's current ramp. The unit is [A/s] or [A/us]. However, the MAX17498's datasheet requires it as [mV/us] (S_E)

enter image description here

I guess that the MAX17498's current sensor characteristic missing to calculate this value.

How to calculate the slope resistor's value of MAX17498?
