It surprises me that the notion of an entry point is that confusing for you. Just think of it this way: Someone sends you a link to a Hydra ApiDocumentation. Now you know what concepts are used in the API etc. But you don't know how to get started, i.e., how to enter the API. hydra:entrypoint tells you just that. It tells you for example, go and start at http://api.example.com/ and proceed from there.
