Except for the part where you get the packages from,
the guide is correct.

Each account can have as many users you'd want.

If you'd like 10 accounts, you'll need 10 volumes.
If you have 10 volumes, you'd have 10 accounts.

For example (uploading an object):
curl -v -X PUT -T mytestfile http://localhost:8080/v1/AUTH_myvolume/mycontainer/mytestfile

Here "myvolumename" is the name of the volume as well as the account.
