Does it mean that I shouldn't use -nc option in colprof if I want to set the total ink limit in collink?
No, you'd only do that if you didn't want real (post calibration) ink limits to be used in collink. The ink limit options in collink work as they have always done in overriding any other defaults, but with the calibration information in the profiles, the ink limits will be in real (post calibration) device values.
What does the total ink limit parameter mean for colprof when the calibration curves are provided?
It means that they are in the post calibration device space, which should be closer to being actual ink on page values.
For example I have the calibration with limits detected by printcal C=79% M=68% Y=48% K=52%. If all channels is at their maximums, will the summ be account in colprof/collink as 247% or 400%?
Targen will also try and take into account any calibration curves too, if the pre-conditioning ICC profile contains calibration curve information (although due to the way ink limits are used within targen this will not be as accurate, and targen will err on the side of making sure the real (post calibration) total ink limit is achieved by the test target).
