CPM is the cost per 1000 impressions. So if you put an ad up on a blog etc and the CPM is $1 then that means everytime your ad is shown 1000 times, you pay a $1, regardless of whether someone clicks on it or not.
I might be wrong but I think it's not like Lauryallan described. CPM is indeed cost per 1000 impressions. But in my opinion, it's only an average and you can get more or less. It really depends on how much clicks on your ads you get. It's more like a estimative, I think.
