The numbers aren't easy to understand because there's not a "per" in them.  Raw numbers don't tell a person anything, as these levels are generally measured in quantities, for example "per liter."  Without knowing what the "per" is, it's not possible to determine.

I did note that the CBD diameter is greater than normal.  The abstract found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/504652 can explain potential causes.  Presumably that is why they are doing the ERCP - to narrow down the possibilities.
