In this case Philip Morris International's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Philip Morris International shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0046% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Philip Morris International shares, roughly 5 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Philip Morris International.
