You should be able to look at the documentation for the timer chip
you are using and figure out what the count value will be for the
particular tick setup.  The default is for 10ms/tick (the divisor value
of 100).  If you look at some other HALs, you can see that some are
hard-wired while others are calculated based on such things as the
system clock xtal frequency, etc.
