A-B and G-M are colour matrix axes. A-B is the Amber vs Blue axis and G-M is the Green vs Magenta axis.

The zero position on both axes (A0 and G0) indicates that there is no tint adjustment applied. If either of the numbers were something other than zero, they would represent the level of the indicated tint adjustment.
