I'm not sure I understand your question. Descriptions for all of the
NAMD options are listed in the user guide. Checking this one find that
the timestep parameter is in femtoseconds. Most users usually choose a
single timestep for all simulations, whether they are being used as
equilibration or production. In certain (unusual) instances, it might be
useful/necessary to begin with a smaller timestep.
