It is Foreign Key constraint on delete records in your object. These parameters define constraint on PostgreSQL level.

Restricting and cascading deletes are the two most common options. RESTRICT prevents deletion of a referenced row. NO ACTION means that if any referencing rows still exist when the constraint is checked, an error is raised; this is the default behavior if you do not specify anything. (The essential difference between these two choices is that NO ACTION allows the check to be deferred until later in the transaction, whereas RESTRICT does not.) CASCADE specifies that when a referenced row is deleted, row(s) referencing it should be automatically deleted as well. There are two other options: SET NULL and SET DEFAULT. These cause the referencing columns to be set to nulls or default values, respectively, when the referenced row is deleted. Note that these do not excuse you from observing any constraints. For example, if an action specifies SET DEFAULT but the default value would not satisfy the foreign key, the operation will fail.

can you explain about RESTRICT and NO ACTION in detail

For SET DEFAULT: 'journal_id': fields.many2one('account.analytic.journal', 'Analytic Journal', required=True, ondelete='set default', select=True),

So how to set the default value when deleted.

Behavior RESTRICT and NO ACTION through use in framework will the same. It affect moment of check constraint and can control through direct SQL queries not through framework. The same for SET DEFAULT, you can't define default values through framework. If you need, you can read how it do more details in PostgreSQL documentation.
