The backslashes belong to the quotes.
The program you call is pg_ctl, but -i is a parameter for postmaster.
You pass parameters to postmaster by specifying them after the -o option.
To be able to put more than one parameter to the postmaster you should
in quotes. But as the whole string already is in quotes (su "...") you have
to use backslashes for the inner quotes.
