AFAIK we do not set that value, so it is 'unlimited' by default.
Seems you manually changed it?

Form vzctl manpage:

   --numiptent num[:num]
              Number of iptables (netfilter) entries.  Setting the barrier and
the limit to different values does
              not make practical sense.

So I am not sure what you want to ask exactly?

I assume your container simply use more that 18 netfilter entries.
