The variable is documented here
or just use M-x describe-variable.

If you just want to set the heap size put this in your .emacs:
(setq slime-lisp-implementations
      '((sbcl ("sbcl" "--dynamic-space-size" "1024"))))

If you want to figure out who or what sets it's to the value it
has, also check /etc/emacs/site-lisp/ or /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/
