Didn't torque sparkplugs specifically?

During my sparkplug DIY I din't torque them to any specification.
What is the figure they need to be torqued to?

I found 21 ft/lb = 28 N/m

I just want to confirm this is indeed the correct figure.

Then I'll get back in there and torque them properly.

Thank you
