In my hubs ads other than those of Google appear. The advertisers' identity is not known. Will the hubbers benefit from such ads? If so, how? As we have only one advertiser account, that is Google's, who will pay for the other ads and how can hubbers benefit from such ads?
Most likely, the ads you are talking about are being displayed on HubPages' share of the page impressions (40%). It is an ongoing experiment, which should not affect your revenue.
@Website Examiner. Please some more clarification. Do you mean that these non-Google ads are directly sponsored by Hubpages for their 40% impressions? That means Google ads impressions are fully given to the Hubbers for their 60% impressions? I don't think so. I request some more clarification from anyone, please.
HP has rights to 40% of the page impressions and they can serve up ads from any ad network of their choosing. They do test other ad networks quite frequently, and I'm sure if they find one that performs better than Google that we will all benefit from it in the end.
Yes. Google ads under your publisher ID are served on 60% of the page impressions. Remember that Google also serves up ads from external Google-certified ad networks--not too sure about the specifics--but that may be what you are referring to. They are counted and paid to you just as any other Google ad.
Here's more info on the external ad networks.

I've read about page views and page impressions and how there are usually more views than impressions (I think I'm saying this right!), but why would there be more impressions than views?
