Your uitable returns a cell array because you've defined the first column as char. If your uitable is supposed to contain numbers only then the easiest way to fix your problem, is to change the ColumnFormat of that first column to 'numeric'. If you show us the line(s) where you create that uitable we can give you the exact syntax.
Alternatively, it can be fixed after the fact, but it'll be slower and kind of pointless:
tableData = get(handles.uitable1, 'Data');
tableData = [str2double(tableData(:, 1)), cell2mat(tableData(:, 2))];
