It is quite apparent if you read the whole hadith. However it is also more explicitly narrated in other ahadith. The choice is between continuing to live longer in this world or transitioning to the afterlife right then.

لا يموت نبي حتى يخير بين الدنيا والآخرة

No Prophet dies till he is given the option to select either the worldly life or the life of the Hereafter
