Here is what is in my JAVA_HOME environment variable.
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_51
It simply points to the location where I installed the jdk. (during the download/installation)

Working with environment variables can be risky, if you are not familiar with this advanced system setting.
Like most things it is easy once you know  how.
If you are not familiar you may want to find something on You Tube that explains it.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 but was able to find it through Settings Control Panel and typing environment variable in the search box.
The fact that your slashes are the other way indicates to me that you are not using Windows. So  you may want to ask an Apple or lynx person.
