NetBSD makes no use of this setting (it doesn't need it, as the ata/wd driver is sane enough to pick a proper value automatically, in contrast to AmigaOS scsi.device). It is important to have it set correctly during transfer of miniroot (on AmigaOS).
Yes! It is VERY important so ensure a correct transfer of the extracted miniroot.fs and the other problems he told us

IHMO you should set it! I have no idea because it only tells the controller to use chip-Ram 24-bit DMA or other Ram and as far as I read, there is no known device wich needs chip or 24-bit instead of any Ram.
