This is because it thre result is a string which contains those characters.
What you need to do is 

 o convert %c to an int  - (string-to-int "%c")
 o add one to this value - (+ (string-to-int "%c") 1)
 o Return the result as a string (format "%s" (+ (string-to-int "%c") 1))

Thus try 

(:eval (format "%s" (+ (string-to-int "%c") 1)))

And don't forget to use column-number-mode!
