In the way it is used at our gym, one "set" or one tabata is 8 on/off cycles. So a tabata "set" would be 4 minutes long, consisting of eight cycles of 20 sec sprint or near max effort followed by 10 seconds of recovery. But you are right, if done properly, you will not be able to finish the last one at the same effort level as the first few.
