Mbits is a measure of data speed, not amount.

You have to specify the accounting in MBytes GBytes etc.  MB GB

You need to find out what your amount of transfer limit is, and cap 

If Google is saying that you can use 100 Mbps of outbound bandwidth on 
average, then you just need the relay bandwidth & burst rates.

It will prevent it from using more than 100 Mbps so you won't go over.
