CPU usage limitation (number of cores)

There is a question about CPU usage limitation and I found no place
for my question other than here.

There are 32 cores in a system (2 cpus each 16 cores) and I want to
limit a user to use only 4 cores (100% usage for that 4 cores). There
are two kernel parameter for that according to the manuals:
cpu.cfs_quota_us and cpu.cfs_period_us

An example on the kernel.org documents says:

With 500ms period and 1000ms quota, the group
can get 2 CPUs worth of runtime every 500ms.
# echo 1000000 > cpu.cfs_quota_us /* quota = 1000ms */
# echo 500000 > cpu.cfs_period_us /* period = 500ms */

I want to know how those ms are determined? In my case, I think the
quota is 32000000 and the period is 4000000. Am I right?
But it doesn't work! and I get an error when I want to start cgroup service

Failed to parse /etc/cgconfig.conf or /etc/cgconfig.d
