How can the bandwidth of 122-16 reach 550MHz?

It's max sample rate is 122.88Mhz, and the max bandwidth is 550Mhz, how could that happen? Is this a result of band-pass sample?
For example, if I want to sample the whole FM broadcasting band (87Mhz-108Mhz in China), what configuration should I do on hardware and software?

I think 550 MHz is an analog bandwidth directly copied from the LTC2185 ADC datasheet.

Sampling a 21 MHz frequency band with the 122-16 board is a little bit challenging.

I have a wideband SDR receiver that can sample two ~9 MHz frequency bands from both RF inputs:

It could be used to sample two ~45% parts of a 21 MHz frequency band.
