From IMDB:

The closing title card, "Based on the character of 'The Bride' created by Q and U", refers to the first initials of Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman.

Aye, also from IMDB: Writing credits Quentin Tarantino (written by) Quentin Tarantino (character The Bride) (as Q) & Uma Thurman (character The Bride) (as U) –  TylerShads Dec 30 '11 at 17:23

It means what it says: The character of "The Bride" (which was played by Uma Thurman) was created by Quentin and Uma. The script is completely different matter. –  Jürgen A. Erhard Jan 2 '12 at 1:02

It refers to (Q)uentin Tarantino and (U)ma Thurman. They actually thought of the idea together while filming Pulp Fiction. In the diner, Uma's character is telling John Travolta's character about a TV show she was in...

Go 2 mins in.

According to DVD commentary, Uma and Quentin then chatted and created the bride.

From IMDb: "According to Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman in the DVD documentary the idea for doing "Kill Bill" began during the filming of Pulp Fiction (1994). The two began talking about the kinds of movies that they would like to do and Quentin said he would like to do a 70's style kung-fu flick. Uma came up with the film's opening shot of her beaten up and wearing a wedding gown."

Can you back those claims in any way? –  Napoleon Wilson Sep 10 at 15:11
    
I've heard this story before, but I can't remember where. –  Ben Plont Sep 10 at 22:28

@BenPlont Well, that would make for a great answer (or at least would make the downvote on this currently wildly speculative answer vanish if added into it). –  Napoleon Wilson Sep 10 at 23:31
