its the duration of how long you hold the note i believe. the "E" means 8th.. not sure bout the "a" though..

An acciaccatura is another name for grace notes. They're notes that aren't metered and are played very fast.

Edit: Notice the counting on the line above the tab you posted? Those are 8th notes. Assuming what you posted is in 4/4, there would be no room for anymore counts, and since acciaccatura's aren't metered, it all works out..

I think I'm actually right for once..
