In your manual it says:

"The only step left is to tell our client about your receiver. If using a USB connected receiver you will need to know your serial port name.

To find this open Terminal and enter: ls /dev/tty*

This will list your serial ports. A typical output is shown below:

/dev/tty

/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Incoming-Port
/dev/tty.Bluetooth-Modem
/dev/tty.usbserial-0002014A
/dev/tty.usbserial-0002014B
/dev/ttyp0

It should be possible to identify the USB ports. If two ports are listed then use the B option as shown below:

But I can not find any

That section sounds like it is for the Kinetic based receivers and not the RTL's?

Suggest you get Dump1090 installed and then connect our client to that
