The Start, Step and Stop in the table is valid when you optimize your EA. 
For example, let say that you want to try a different range of Take profit values 200-1000 

than,
Start = 200

Step (the "jumps" of the values = 10 (Check each 10 points 200..210..220... )

Stop = 1000

If you do wish to Optimize please read

The proposed article gives simple and clear answers to all of these questions and provides a slightly more professional approach to handling these issues using a specific example.
