This question already has an answer here:

I've only seen The Force Awakens but what I know is that Darth Vader is Luke's father, giving rise to the famous "I am your father" quote.

So is Darth Vader really Ren's grandfather or is he just calling him that?

Yes, he really is. Kylo Ren is Leia's son, and hence Darth Vader's grandson.

Leia is Anakin Skywalker's / Darth Vader's daughter, as first revealed in Return of the Jedi. She is Luke's twin sister.

In The Force Awakens, it is emphasized several times that both Han and Leia are Kylo Ren's parents.

For instance,

LEIA (to HAN): If you see our son [Ben Solo / Kylo Ren], bring him home.
