Safety Height is the retraction height of the bit when it moves between the toolpaths. You can adjust this to avoid clamps or differences in material height.

Step Over % is the percentage of the bit diameter that actually cuts the material. The smaller this value is, the less material you cut with each pass. This is used primarily in the Fill cut of a toolpath. You should leave this at its default.
