That means this:

If you have to bend HALF-STEP - it means you must bend it to get the sound of the note if you just fretted a half step from your base note.

So for example if you have a G and you have to bend HALF-STEP it means you have to bend it to G#. If you have a whole-step bend - bend it to A.

If you don't know what should it sound like - well - fret a half-step higher from G and then try to bend G to get the same note.

To go with what pavel said, try bending in front of your guitar tuner. If your ear isnt quite perfect(and mine definitely isnt!) the tuner will show you exactly how far each of those bends are.
