Question BFAST indexing

I've recently been introduced to BFAST. So please bear with me.

I am trying on reads from Illumina (36bp) but how is the -m and -w option determined?

With the reads of <40bp, my reads should best have the key size of 18. I see variations of -m options with 111111111111111111,11111111111111111101 ,1111101110111010100101011011111 and etc. Can someone please explain to me the difference of it?

Thanks in advance!

The appendix states that you should make ten indexes, so you need to have ten "bfast index" commands, one for each mask.
