”ms” is the abbreviation for “millisecond” or one thousandth of one second. In the decimal system this would be shown as .001 of a second or in fractions 1/1000 of a second.
So, the case that you refer to would be shown as 16 ms or .016 seconds or 16/1000 (an improper fraction in this case).
In normal networking you would expect a few milliseconds for a ping response time but in your screenshots 1170 ms is very long (over 1 second) and indicates there are potential problems, the red vertical lines are indicating dropped packets which confirms there is a problem which will cause problems for devices running on your network.
I hope this helps but feel free to ask if you have further questions.

Regarding the Arabic I’m afraid I can’t help. I’m guessing that what you are referring to is the mathematical term “Standard Deviation” which is a statistical function. Basically, “the Standard deviation is a number used to tell how measurements for a group are spread out from the average (mean), or expected value.”
I’m afraid that I’m not a mathematician so can’t really offer more of an explanation on this but hopefully this will be a useful starting point if you wish to study the subject further.
all the best.P.S. I attach an image, in English, which may help.2
