It gives some pointers on the size of the page and how it affects various page loading speeds of users connections. Easily managed by the webpage owner.

There is no real way to test your websites real speed because what you test on is going to be very different from what the end user is going to be using. Using websites to analyze your website for improvements is not really helpful because they load your website on there server which has a faster connection then yours and then guess how it might load on a slower connection.

The best tool's are already built in your browser if you are using a modern one. Just turn on developer mode and look at the inspector. Typically there will be a tab called resources and that will show every object on a web page and how long it took to download and process those files. Doing tweaks based on whats in there is a good thing and will improve your sites speed. But then again it's only based on how your computer loaded the page. If someone goes to your site with slower computer and older browser it will load much slower.

Many other things can come into play on your websites "real" speed like what type of web server you run, how far you are from the server, the servers load, etc. etc.

There is no way to know a websites "real" speed, because what it is for you, it will be different for another person.
