Well, these are seconds for one page to load. ab issued a hundred requests 
and calculated these figures. This 
page is a good introduction. 

In other words, split gives you:

Requests per second:    3.41 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request:       293.478 [ms] (mean)

versus the non-split

Requests per second:    2.68 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request:       373.358 [ms] (mean)
