The section at the end of the webpage you linked titled "Some
keybindings" is quite self-explanatory, as a pdf reader goes.

For more details, while visiting a pdf file with pdf-tools, you can use

C-h k <key sequence>

for seeing the docstring of the command associated to that sequence.

You can also invoke the command pdf-tools-help, which will show commands
and variables associated with the mode.


M-x customize-group [ENTER] pdf-tools [ENTER]

will show an interface for configuring how pdf-tools works.
