How to read the data from SysBench And UNIXBench when testing VPS?

i want to test several linux VPS using bench mark tools
as i read there are 2 industry standard tools called unixBench and SysBench
I compiled them and executed them on the VPS
And i have results :
Code:
SysBench:( 4 CPU)

    ./sysbench --test=cpu --cpu-max-prime=20000 --num-threads=4 run

The result :

    General statistics:
        total time:                          3.222s
        total number of events:              10000
    
    Latency (ms):
             min:                                  1.64
             avg:                                  5.76
             max:                                  6.19
             95th percentile:                      3.00
             sum:                              60000.86
    
    Threads fairness:
        events (avg/stddev):           30000.0000/2.00
        execution time (avg/stddev):   8.0002/0.00

from reading i know that the important info is in : total time: 3.222s
ok .. but compared to what ?
how can i know that this is good result ?
also what about the other parameters ? like 95th percentile
what does it means ?


Now running UnixBench ( 4 CPU )

Code:
    ./Run -c 4

The result : 
 

    BYTE UNIX Benchmarks (Version 5.1.3)

Here again i know i should look at the :
System Benchmarks Index Score                                        1157.3

but again the question raised this result is compared to what ?
how should i know if this total result is good ? bad ? average ?
Thanks

Linux and UNIX

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose.
Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period, this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix variants.
In the early days, this included the University of California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
