This just means that the train was classifed in that category, nothing more or less; its actual commercial speed may be above or below that of other trains classified as 'passenger' or 'fast passenger' trains. However, tickets for a 'superfast' train carry an extra surcharge.
Nominally, a superfast train should have a commercial speed in excess of 55km/h on BG. On MG, the minimum commercial speed used to be 45km/h for classification as superfast, but there have not been any MG superfasts for some time now
