Function arguments are specified the same way as for operations except you can have up to 16 of them. They also return any reasonable number of results just like operations. See the first talk on instruction decoding.
The function gets a brand-new belt with all of its arguments loaded in order. I think that was described in more detail in the second talk.
Edit: I’m not sure if I actually answered your question about the mechanics of passing those arguments to functions in the assembly language. I don’t know if that has been specifically mentioned.
