Use this only if JMeter needs to use a proxy to reach the web server you
are testing.  For instance, if you are testing a server that lies on the
other side of a firewall.  These command line options have nothing to do
with the proxy recorder in JMeter.

It sounds like JMeter, your browser, and the site you are testing are
all on the same computer, in which case, 'localhost' should work fine. 
JMeter does not need to use your workplace's proxy server to access your
localhost machine.
