Well, the key _is_ labelled "L" on keyboards.  The Emacs notation is
"C-l" (as written correctly above), and you get it by pressing the
keys labelled "Ctrl" and "L".

I think it is not really helpful here to make much unclearer what the
parenthetical remark is actually referring to, for the sake of forcing
Emacs key sequence description semantics partly into a place that is
used to clarify the semantics by using non-Emacs terminology.
