Default Yet another battery question

I'm pretty new to electric cars and am trying to learn about batteries and their ratings. I see most of the matchers selling packs with numbers in the 1.7X to 1.8X range most of the time as the higher voltage ratings. I talked to a guy that says he has 3300 GP batteries with the following numbers:

Cell 1 Cell2 Cell3 Cell4 Cell5 Cell6
Average Voltage
1.204 1.204 1.204 1.204 1.204 1.204
Internal Resistance
2.3 2.3 2.4 2.5 2.5 2.5
635 625 628 626 627 625
Discharge cutoff-time
5000 5000 5000 5000 5000 5000
Discharge cutoff-voltage
0.9v 0.9v 0.9v 0.9v 0.9v 0.9v
Charge Rate
6.0A 6.0A 6.0A 6.0A 6.0A 6.0A
Discharge Rate
20A 20A 20A 20A 20A 20A

These numbers seem impossibly high to me for voltage and run time. Is it possible to obtain these numbers? Also the price he is offering is considerbly lower than any of the matchers I've checked.

those look like 20amp discharge numbers instead of the industry standard 30amp.

as TreyDog said, they're 20A discharge numbers.
