Sugino crankset bolt torque?

I have this triple Sugino square taper crankset on a bike. I was recently trying to figure out the source of a creak when I checked to see if the bolts were tight. They felt surprisingly loose, so I snugged them up a little bit. Now I'm wondering about the next step. I would like to torque them correctly, but I've heard that you shouldn't do this repeatedly (i.e. tighten them, ride, then tighten them some more). Should I take them off completely and start over? What torque should I use for these?

This crankset originally came on a 2005 Bianchi Volpe. The only markings are "Sugino" on the front and "C-10" on the back.
