The question is about tension. Tune hubs limit is 1200Nm, super spokes need tension min 950. Rims are ok. Wheelset for cx/gravel. Is it ok to build with tension 950-1000Nm? My weight is 85 kg.

Those numbers are pretty standard. Make sure you go with the recommended spoke tensions for your rim.
I imagine, they will usually be ~90-120 kg/f depending on lacing pattern, and whether DS/NDS and whether using disc brakes.

90kg/f = 882.6N
120kg/f = 1176.8N
