The blade tilt hand wheel is located on the side of the saw and allows you to tilt the blade up to 45 degrees away from the fence. The hand wheel which allows you to adjust the tilt of the saw blade is usually located on the left or right side of the unit depending on which way the arbor is made to tilt. Portable table saws usually don't give you as much control as professional cabinet saws though, and they often combine elevation and tilt adjustment in one wheel.
One thing you have to keep in mind is to slide the wood a bit slower than you normally would because the movement of the gouge can move it out of place. To make sure this doesn't happen you can secure the board to the gouge using a clamp. Thanks to a miter gouge you can also make compound cuts. Compounds cuts are made by setting the miter gouge at a desired angle and bevel of the saw blade at the same time.
If you encounter some resistance while moving the fence, I would advise you apply some sort of lubrication like wax. Factory or stock gouges are sometimes poorly made, and most people correct this by purchasing an after market miter gouge. However, if you get a table saw with a bad fence and leave it that way, it's not a shortcoming for which you can easily compensate.
