You should make sure you have enough memory for the buffers
configured. If your system will start swapping - there will
obvious performance degradation compared to smaller buffers.
Default buffers indeed might be better unless you have good
reasons for the buffers sizes set, or you might start with default
sizes and tune them till you are happy with the result. Exact
optimal sizes depend on a particular use case.

This depends on what and how long you want to cache and how you
would like to handle upstream errors.

The message indicate that an (uncacheable) response was buffered to
a temporary file. It doesn't indicate the problem per se, but
might be useful to track sources of I/O problems. It also might
appear as a side effect from other problems - e.g. if you have
network issues and clients just can't download files requested
If you see such messages it might be just ok if they are rare
enough. Or might indicate that you should configure bigger
buffers (if you have enough memory), or consider disabling disk
