I want to price gov bonds using Bid Yields (column 5) from the screen below, and quantlib. I am not sure what those Bid Yield rates represent.
Do those Bid yields represent spot rates, or what?

These are not spot rates, but yield to maturities of actual bonds. If you right click on the table, click on "Related," then "Quote," then you can see the actual bonds for each tenor. For example, currently the "10Y" bond has a coupon of 7.26%, maturing on August 22, 2022.
