This is explained and documented under -axis label options-. 

In the manual, see the section [G] axis_label_options; on-line 
see

whelp axis_label_options 

or 

whelp axis label options 

in an -update-d Stata. 

One key is know where to look is to realise that tick options 
are options like -xtick()- and -ytick()- but labelled tick options 
are options like -xlabel()- and -ylabel()-. Stata's been consistent 
on that since the late 1980s.
