It means that 181M out of 251M are used, and that's approximately 72% of
the RAM.  When looking at this number, its important to remember that
the 181M is the RAM being used by processes on the system, as well as
any memory the kernel is using for buffers and cache (such as it uses
with filesystems to speed up repeated accesses).
