General understanding of postprocessing in paraFoam

I want to get values out of my simulations for a mesh-independence study. No problem:
1. Insert a slice
2. Insert a Filter "Integrate variables"
3. Attribute "Cell Data"
1. As far as I understood, I have to divide the value by the area at that position, is that correct?
2. The pressure, that is defined in 0/p and given in paraFoam in the filter e.g. is the relative static pressure, right?
3. Do I have to multiply that pressure with density to receive the correct pressure?
Sorry for these basic questions, but I do not want to make stupid mistakes!

Let me respond to your questions:
2. If you are running an incompressible solver: yes. You can also find it in the dimensions of your 0/p file. If it reads [0 2 -2 0 0 0 0] you have kinematic pressure (pressure divided by density). If it reads [1 -1 -2 0 0 0 0] you have absolute pressure. OpenFOAM uses relative pressure in incompressible cases, but absolute pressure in compressible cases.
3. (Like in 2.): yes if incompressible
