Well, the '16' is obviously a mistake, but the given values are not completely unreasoable for 12-target leapers. These are normally just slightly below a Rook. And note that the Rook here is devaluated, because it no longer has mating potential due to the extra corner squares.
I think the definition of the two new pieces is rather ambiguous as the are described virtually as knight-wazir and knight-ferz but it is also said in both cases that they cover 16 squares which would be wrong, the above mentioned cover only 12 square. If knight-wazir and knight-ferz it is mostly known that they worth around 4.5 each. Not the values plunged into the article. But who knows my understanding maybe off. Has anyone understood it better?

The aproach in value between rook on one side and knight and bishop on the other is what I find appealing in this game :)!
