may be (I am not sure :), lets get it clarified.

I would say (1) with slight modification
"container will be able to touch _at least_ that number of pages"

Note that it is not only in the context of memory alone, it is generic
across resources.

For CPU it will be, "container will get _at least_ X ticks in Y seconds"

For number of tasks it will be, "container will get _at least_ X active
tasks at any point of time" and so on.

And as Dave pointed, sum of guarantees of all containers _can not_
exceed the total amount of that resource available at the system level.
