Is that correct? If so, can we update the doc? If not, what is the best way to limit the request size for chunked encoding?

The client_max_body_size directive limits maximum request body size
as specified in the “Content-Length” request header.
Since chunked transfer encoding support introduced for request body
in nginx 1.3.9, the limit instead applies while processing body chunks
if the request body is signalled with "Transfer-Encoding: chunked".
In HTTP/2 (and upcoming HTTP/3) the limit also applies to the actually
processed request body chunks in the corresponding protocols,
if the "Content-Length" request header was not specified in a request.
