The expression $$v/(\mathrm{mol\ s^{-1}\ kg^{-1}})=30$$ means $$v=30\ \mathrm{mol\ s^{-1}\ kg^{-1}}$$ This notation is used in the table, so that the entries are all just numbers without any unit symbols. For an explanation, I copy the following section from my meta answer, which is mainly a collection of rules and examples taken from various standards and ...

I strongly recommend looking at this: QUAM:2012.P1 (EURACHEM/CITAC Guide, “Quantifying Uncertainty in Analytical Measurement”, 3rd Ed., 2012., 141 pages.) You can easily find it online, for free, and it is all about quantifying uncertainties in measurements, though with an obvious focus on analytical chemistry-related measurements. As an example, the figure ...

Your question is a valid question, and ignore downvotes. They don't mean anything. Your understanding is very good and that you realized that the electrode potential is a property of the electrode and it really does not care how the reaction is written. However, a equation is $needed$ to keep track of the electrons lost or gained in the Nernst equation. So ...
