Indeed, but what wording do you suggest, that is understandable by someone
with little experience with parallel computing ?

The GNU libc sysconf manpage says
 - _SC_NPROCESSORS_CONF The number of processors configured

which hinges on the meaning of 'processors'.

The Windows documentation says

  The number of logical processors in the current group. To retrieve the
current processor group, use the GetLogicalProcessorInformation function.
