I think the documentation is clear, but then again, I wrote it, so I'm
the worst judge of clarity in this case.

The number is the cumulative count of statuses that matched your
predicate but were not delivered to you. If this number is high and or
rapidly increasing, it is an indication that your predicate is too
broad, and you should consider a predicate with higher selectivity.
Alternatively, you can apply for higher levels of track access that
allow a higher proportion of statuses to be delivered.
