Section 8.3 says:
Its four data bytes indicate the rate at which the receiver has received data since it last sent an acknowledgement, in bytes per second. To calculate this receive rate, the receiver sets t to the larger of the estimated round- trip time and the time since the last Receive Rate option was sent.
It should say:
Its four data bytes indicate the rate at which the receiver has received data over the last round-trip time, in bytes per second. To calculate the time interval t for calculating this receive rate, the receiver follows Section 6.2 of [RFC3448].
This errata updates RFC 4342 to use the definition of the receive rate
as specified in RFC 3448.
