NPCS in Summerset keep calling me it and I have no idea what it means

    Perhaps corresponding to "serjo" and "sera" / "muthsera" of the Dunmer ?

    It means the person who's saying it is a snobby Altmer. :)

    Most likely this. Every Race has their own native language, even though in-game we hear everyone speaking in "Cyrodiilic". Those Altmer as just calling you Mister or Miss in their own tongue.

    But if they call you nebarra or n'wah, then they are not exactly calling you "ma'am" or "sir."

    I don't believe the "Sir" and Ma'am" translations are correct, as NPC's will call a single person both ceruval and cerum in the same discussion (i.e. Tarnavir, the former Chief Inquisitor uses both in addressing the questor during his initial conversation).

    Didn't the jerk face Earl of Clavius Vile say that cerum meant unwelcomed or something? Maybe I'm confusing it for something else.

    Based on when it's used, I assumed it was a polite version of "outsider." At least its usage is more consistent than "f'lah."
