I think the definition is correct. Indeed API also stands for Application Programming Interface, but here it's used in another way: https://nmixreallygetsme.wordpress.com/2012/01/24/advanced-programming-interface-api/

Just means it allows you to use the developers code to do certain things, but for google and amazon they charge you for using server requests.
The allot a certain amount free then charge afterward. Aka cloud services.
