You can refer the vSphere API docs for the meaning of each metric name: https://code.vmware.com/apis/196/vsphere/doc/vim.PerformanceManager.html

vsphere.vm.power.power - in here, the group is 'power' and the counter name is also 'power'. You can find the meaning of this metric here: https://code.vmware.com/apis/196/vsphere/doc/power_counters.html - it's the current power usage in watts.
