Sigma Studio - Dynamics and time constants (ms vs dB/s)

I am developing an app using ADAU1452 and Sigma Studio. I am using a Compressor block (for rms and peak compression/limiting).

I have seen time constants are in "dB/s", but i would like to work with "ms" (that I think is a more unsderstandable term by most users).

I have also seen that the module changes its units from dB/s to ms by cliking the time constant label, is it the real conversion?. Also I think the dsp always has to receive this parameter in dB/s units, isn't it?

I would like to know if there is a formula to convert from  ms to dB/s,

And also if the module can receive parameters straight in ms instead of dB/s.
