just a short note from me, teor alread mentioned it, be careful with
Megabit (Mb) vs. MegaByte (MB).

Here is the part with the important information:
With this option, and in other options that take arguments in bytes,
KBytes, and so on, other formats are also supported. Notably, "KBytes"
can also be written as "kilobytes" or "kb"; "MBytes" can be written as
"megabytes" or "MB"; "kbits" can be written as "kilobits"; and so forth.
Tor also accepts "byte" and "bit" in the singular. The prefixes "tera"
and "T" are also recognized. If no units are given, we default to bytes.
To avoid confusion, we recommend writing "bytes" or "bits" explicitly,
since it’s easy to forget that "B" means bytes, not bits.

Copied from here: https://2019.www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en

For you connection it seems to be 97MBit/s, and it gives you a data rate
of 11MByte/s, also the important question still is if you have
synchronous up- and download bandwidth, please do a speed test if you
are not sure -> search engine "speedtest". For the replay bandwidth you
have to use the smaller value of both, up- and download capability.
