Actually a wiki page exists for that:
It was created just two months ago and the value is not documented in
the main article about traffic calming. The value is used about 400
times currently.

Is this an accepted value? From the description "An island is a small
area that temporarily separates two different directions of traffic."
it would fit quite well.
