"Minimal distance for longjogs" - this is the shortest distance run that can count towards being a long run for the purposes of the marathon shape calculation

Yes. And this setting does highly influence on how long runs longer that the target (of currently 30 km) scale.

"Days for longjogs" - this is the period over which long runs are accumulated. Are they then averaged per day or per week?

Each long run gets its own rating. For a target of 30 km, a 30 km gets exactly 1.0 points - weighted on it's date (i.e. 2.0 points if it's today and 0.0 points if its just out of the specified period). There is no averaging or anything like that. Those points are just accumulated.

The score for a 25k run (or a 35k run) depends on the minimal distance from above. For a minimal distance of 13k, a 13k run gives 0.0 points and the distance range from 13k to 30k scales exponentially to 1.0. Setting the minimal distance up to e.g. 20k increases the 'gradient' and causes a 35k run to get a much higher score than with a minimal distance of 13k.

"Days for week kilometer" - this is the period over which the total volume is accumulated. Again, are these then averaged over a day or week?

What kind of averaging are you talking about? The total sum (of e.g.182 days) is compared to its target (in your case: 84k/week --> expected sum of182 * 84 / 7).

"Days for week kilometer (minimum)" - no idea what this is supposed to do!

It's only relevant if there's no historical data.

"Factor for week kilometers" - is this in relation to the split of the weighting between volume and long runs? So if I change this to 0.5, then volume and long runs are equally accounted for in the calculation?

Correct.

So to get a perfect score for long runs, I'd need to do 1 or more runs of at least 13km accumulating to 30km (based on my VO2Max) over a 7 day period to max out the weekly score, and do that over a 70 day period to max out the score overall - and this would comprise 33% of the total score.

As mentioned above, every single run get's its own score and those points should sum up to 10.0 (for a 70 day period).

The third icon in the 'Calculations' panel on the right (magic wand icon) links to an information popup that shows some of those details.
