Occupied tones determines the number of used (occupied) carriers, i.e.
the number of carriers which contain data and pilots. The number of
carriers which can be used at most is determined by the FFT length.
Carrier spacing Δf_c is determined by Δf_c = 1/T_s where T_s is the
length of the OFDM symbol (cyclic prefix not included). Assuming a
sampling rate of f_s you get Δf_c = 1/(N·(1/f_s)) = f_s/N where N is the
required length of the FFT.
