C is the cell's capacity. So for an 1100mAh cell, C=1100mA or 1.1A.
If you charge a 1100mAh cell at 1A, then you are charging at 0.9C.

I generally charge my HECELL 1100 cells at 1100mA. But, I top them off at the field at 1800 or 2200mA to warm them up a bit.

You may also want to look at the FAQ for a full discourse on battery technology and terminology.
