In the man page for my version of ps (Slackware), there's a section called 'standard format specifiers' containing the different keywords that may be used to control the output format of ps. The C column is described as "processor utilization. Currently, this is the integer value of the percent usage over the lifetime of the process. (see %cpu)".

Your ps may well be different, but it should be described in the man page.
