X 
Matrix of covariate values to produce fitted survival curves
for. Columns represent different covariates, and rows represent
multiple curves. For example For “factor” (categorical) covariates, the values of the contrasts
representing factor levels (as returned by the
If there are only factor covariates in the model, then KaplanMeier
curves are plotted for all distinct groups, and by default, fitted
curves are also plotted for these groups. To plot KaplanMeier and
fitted curves for only a subset of groups, use If there are any continuous covariates, then a single population KaplanMeier curve is drawn. By default, a single fitted curve is drawn with the covariates set to their mean values in the data  for categorical covariates, the means of the 0/1 indicator variables are taken.
