Understanding all the sections of a STATSPACK report is quite complicated, and I have a whole chapter dedicated to reading a STATSPACK (and AWR) report in my new book, Oracle Tuning: The Definitive Reference.
In a nutshell, the most important areas of the STATSPACK report are the top-5 timed events and the statistics for the major database events. The I/O statistics are also very useful.
