None primary energy (following thread 37)

Hi, in Question 37 Dr. Asai mentioned the definition of monentum: 

 (Ek+M)^2 = P^2 + M^2 where Ek is kinetic energy.
 Thus for kinetic energy of 1 GeV of proton (mass = 0.938 GeV), 
 momentum is 1.696 GeV. 

I just want to make sure that when I use user command like this: 

/gun/particle ion 
/gun/ion 26 56 26 
/gun/energy 1 GeV 

The 1 GeV is the kninetic energy, right? 
And is there any manual or introduction for the UI commands? 
Thanks.
