That is the Scribunto standalone engine debug log, which is disabled
by default, for good reason. In fact, the method to enable it is
undocumented, so I'm not sure how you managed to enable it and then
forget about it. In LocalSettings.php you would have something like

$wgScribuntoEngineConf['luastandalone']['debug'] = true;

Delete that line.
