Monitor Brightness, Contrast, and Luminosity

I'm a bit confused by the relationship between monitor Brightness and Contrast settings, and the Luminosity setting selected during monitor calibration. My calibration software asks me to select a luminosity value (perhaps 120 cd/m2) but says nothing about monitor brightness and contrast settings. Aren't these settings important in photo editing so that a printed image will be a close match to the screen image?

How do I coordinate Brightness, Contrast, and (calibrated) luminosity ?   Is there a general "rule of thumb" for this?
