It says on the header mb and PCT
Those mean megabytes and %, respectively.

If you are having issues, it is because you need to configure at least 1x RAM to swap space (or even more, depending).

It is because HPUX reserves swap space for every memory allocation.

This is a nice article explaining why and how to configure swap space on HPUX, it for SAP but can be applied in general.
SAP on HP-UX: Recommendations for swap and pseudo swap

And some further information about swapinfo command itself and it's output, and general HPUX memory handling.
HP-UX-Admin: [HPADM] RE: -SUMMARY- Clarification on swapinfo/glance output

Hope that helps
