Yes /tmp is the common value for that
While on the issue of /tmp, something worth noting not so much
for you as much as for the benefit of everyone reading this thread ....

Most servers generally have /tmp setup incorrectly for security
by default and this is one of the largest and most exploited
security holes that is ironically most often overlooked when
most people try to harden the security on their servers.

The good news is this is an easy issue to fix ...

Though it doesn't always work, cpanel provides a script that may help:
# /scripts/securetmp 

Would you like to secure /tmp & /var/tmp at boot time? (y/n) y
Would you like to secure /tmp & /var/tmp now? (y/n) y
It is a good idea to double check things ...

1. Edit your /etc/fstab file and look for the line that says "/dev/shm"
and you may see something like the following:
tmpfs     /dev/shm       tmpfs   [b]defaults[/b]   0 0
If it isn't already set as below, change the line to the following:
tmpfs     /dev/shm       tmpfs   [b]noexec,nosuid[/b]   0 0
2. Remount the partition ('mount -o remount /dev/shm')
