What is Pagesize in Azure Data lake import?



With the latest release of Power BI I have experienced some issues with existing Power BI reports connecting to Azure Data Lake files. One thing which I have found no explanation or documentation for is a new field called Pagesize at the same step as where I specify the adl:// URL. It sais that it is optional but nevertheless I have to put in a value to proceed. I just don't know what value and what it is and no google-searches have pointed me in the right direction. The load seems to go faster if I type in 100000 instead of 10, but that is all I know. Can anyone explain what it is or where to find information about this?
