Hello, how is m-sata enabled with LS1020A? I see the tower dev board, TWR-LS1021A, fact sheet

mentions (1) m-sata slot, and the LS1021A iot reference mentions the same m-sata slot:

however, in both cases, it doesn't look like there is a slot on the board pics, just two plain pci-e, correct? Just want to confirm, can a design incorporate a third pci-e slot be connected to LS1020A in conjunction with its sata controller in order to support m-sata card plugins?
