I don't know. My reading of dir-spec says it is probably the 0%–10%,
10%–20%, 20%–30%, etc. circuits counting by number of cells.


    "cell-processed-cells" num,...,num NL
        Mean number of processed cells per circuit, subdivided into
        deciles of circuits by the number of cells they have processed in
        descending order from loudest to quietest circuits.
