Is 1 - 10,000 requests are FREE for each month in Rate Limiting?

The information on the page Billing for Cloudflare Rate Limiting is not clear and can be misleading.
Does user get 1 - 10,000 requests for free each month (limit resets each month) or only after first enabling rate limiting (and no more any free limits, always pay)?

For example, is somebody has a small website with <10,000 requests / month, can he use rate limiting each month for free, while he do not exceed free bound?

My understanding is that is a monthly limit, however -> @cloonan for clarification

Billing is monthly, so if you’re under 10,000 (for that month), it’s free. I have Rate Limits on most of my plans and have never been billed for it.
