Hi Marco,
This is really an AutoDock Vina question rather than a Chimera question, because Chimera is just showing the values it gets back.

See the “Output” section of the AutoDock Vina manual:

It is also important to realize that the AutoDock Vina web service used by the Chimera tool only allows very little sampling, not sufficient for most research purposes.  For more thorough sampling and/or use of other options not available through the Chimera interface, you would need to download and use AutoDock Vina directly (not using Chimera).  This is a “boxed warning" on the Chimera manual page for this tool:

I hope this helps,
