The page in question doesn't try to document how to configure nginx on Windows for various production setups.  Rather, it tries to document that such setups are not really supported and should be avoided.

Certainly nginx is production is a good idea, just not on Windows.
Expect nginx on Windows to be usable for tasks like testing and development, but not for production.  For production setups, consider switching to a Unix-like OS.
