-Xms270m -Xmx270m (or -ms270m -mx270m for Java 1.1)

ms is an initial size and mx is a maximum. The above example will set heap size to 270MB and will not allow it to increase

-Xms512M -Xmx512M

Basically the numeric value (here: 520) can be set half the size of your memory.
For eg: If you are using 1GB of Ram, set the numeric value to 512M.
