6VA is the power rating of the transformer.
It is volts * amps. Transformers are rated by temperature rise, how much continuous power you can draw without melting the windings, (exceeding 70%C). In this case, you can draw 1 amp at 6 volts with the secondries in parallel, or 1/2 amp at 12 volts, secondries in series.
