I agree that it was not bad to ask the question here.

However, the provided answer (apart from the "off topic" -- i.e.
the reference to "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Determining_the_number_of_clusters_in_a_data_set";) was excellent.
It tells you that the cluster number is a general parameter for
the "kmeans" algorithm (independent of any implementation) and how you
can get some approximations.
