"Tab" refers to the tab button on the keyboard. It is definable according to whatever application you use. Normally, we type our papers in Microsoft Word program. Of course you can define how many spaces one press of the tab button will go. The default setting of it normally is five spaces. 

You can use the "tab" space to start a paragraph. Comparing to press "space" button for five times, this way maybe more convenient.
