    Could be origin markers. Some brush entities have them. They are used as the base for transformations.

    Use the info_observer_point entity for observer cameras.

    They are, in fact, other cameras. Hammer supports using more than one for quickly looking at different things, but most people don't use them due to the easy of the WASDZ system (and, arguably, the small size of TF2 maps). It seems you've inadvertently created a bunch of extra ones.
