Question about atop

I just picked up a NAT vps from one of our fine providers

I'm noticing my CPU% is very low, but my average is quite high (CPU ~10%, avg - up to 4.8!)

In troubleshooting I started using Atop... new to me...

CPU usage remains low (around 90% idle), RAM I'm using about 300MB of 1GB...

I ran atop to checkout it out and have unusually high SWIN and SWOUT (about 5000, 19000 respectively over 3 hours)...

Do the SWIN and SWOUT mean anything in particular? What other tests can I do to find out why my average is so high?
