Lxc import issue

I have only 7G for /tmp, but I discover that for the import process the /tmp is used for cached?

:/var/tmp# snap list
Name    Version   Rev    Tracking       Publisher   Notes

:/var/tmp# lxc import win2016std.tar.gz
Importing instance: 82% (328.17MB/s)Error: write /tmp/lxd_backup_342207348: no space left on device

I don't find in docs any setting related to a folder tmp
      
      lxc storage list
