It is from "man mount"

       (iii) Normally, only the superuser can mount file systems.
However, when fstab contains the user option on a line, anybody can
mount the corresponding system.

       Thus, given a line
              /dev/cdrom  /cd  iso9660  ro,user,noauto,unhide
       any user can mount the iso9660 file system found on his CDROM
using the command
