Yes, the clock-frequency is used to specify the frequency when the
information can not be retrieved from the clock. The goal is not to
specify a frequency and compute from there a prescalar value.

Hardcoding the frequency is fine or hardcode the divider and compute the
frequency from the clock rate.
