That number is the raw number of reported installs via the usage reporting mechanism built into Package Control. The percentage is the percentage of the total number of users.
The total number of users is calculated by finding the total number of unique combinations of IP address and platform. While surely this number is overinflated by users installing packages while on different networks, it is also reduced by the fact that many networks are NAT'ed, meaning that multiple users will appear as one. This seems like the best compromise. I didn't want to use Package Control installs since a user can deinstall and then reinstall, which would register as 2 users.
