The third parameter or 'speed', as it is called in the description, refers to the amount of time the message will be shown on-screen. Multiply each number by 10 to get the number of seconds it will be shown. You can even use floats as input, like 0.1, to show a message for only 1 second.

Note: Calculating the time with that method does not include the time it takes to fade in/out, which is about 1 second unless you use numbers lower than 1.
Note: Using anything lower than 0.001 seems to have no effect, or the effect is so little it is negligible.
