No, the HTML spec calls these (&#160; et al.) "numeric character references". A "character entity reference" is &nbsp; etc. - a general entity reference that resolves to a single character.

As others have noted, though, this table can be misleading; for instance, the column labeled "OCR A" displays in Georgia in my browser. You can't control the appearance on someone else's screen. Just adding a note would be helpful.
