The first BVS number is for the lattice you used, the second is an
approximate estimate for an expanded lattice with the typical PBE
expansion. You can/should put into a file ".latcalib" (note the "." at the
front) the linear expansion/contraction for the DFT optimized volume.

The numbers you have are a bit odd, particularly the Sr is rather high. Did
you take the positions from some report of SrCoO2.5 or are you just
calculating the metastable SrCoO3? If a phase is metastable (or unstable)
you cannot expect it to yield "simple" results such as a Co4+ valence. The
Sr-Co-O family is quite complex.
