If would like to be able to type "python" on the command line and have that use a particular version of MacPorts python, as opposed to whatever version of python Apple ships with macOS, then you can run the appropriate "port select python ..." command. Similarly, if you would like to be able to run "cython" and have that be a particular version of MacPorts cython, run the appropriate port select command.
Since you mentioned that this happened when you installed Inkscape, I suspect that you do not care about running "python" or "cython" on the command line at this time, so the notes are irrelevant to you and you can ignore them.
