best to see MS definition which they refer to RPS and throughput

RPS   Requests per second. The number of requests received by a farm or server in one second. This is a common measurement of server and farm load. The number of requests processed by a farm is greater than the number of page loads and end-user interactions....

Throughput   Throughput is defined as the number of concurrent requests that a server or server farm can process....

the reference architecture as planning norm stated in rps and user base size

Overall, i see these useful links can come in handy
