Spot metering means that the

Spot metering means that the light sensor is focused in the very center for any lighting adjustments. A good example is if you are shooting with a bright background or the sun to the left or right and are taking a picture of a person in the center of the picture area. I do not know the exact numbers but think of it like looking only at the very center around 10% to get the light adjustment (persons face is lit correctly), versus average metering (default) is over 60% of the whole picture area and the light adjustment is averaged for the whole area.
