That is site specific, you will need to talk to your systems programmers.

Just to extend the answer a bit...UNIT parameter identifies the type of device a data set is to reside on. General JCL syntax is:
Code:
Syntax: UNIT=({device-number | device-type | group-name},
              {unit-count | P},DEFER)                   
In your example "DELM" can be anything device-number, device-type or group-name based upon your site-standard-- no one from here can tell for sure, as expat said-- so yes for better understanding talk to your system programmers or talk with some "senior" at your shop who had been habitual of these terms by now.
