Where can I find the official documentation of the limits of Google Custom Search Engine including for example the maximum number of synonyms?

I know I once saw a page listing various maxima, but now I (via Google) can't find it e.g. at

Of course, the page I saw could have been withdrawn.

The offical documentation is on https://developers.google.com/custom-search/docs/queries#limits

From the above link:

  • Thanks Rubén. It looks like you were beaten by a few minutes. :) Number of synonyms was just an example. What I'm seeking is the list all limits.... on the reasonable assumption there are other limits. – ChrisJJ Nov 29 '16 at 16:50
