Anybody know about Shanghai Jiao Tong University? What merits does it have? Should we trust its rankings of universities?

Their results are not reproducible:

UofT Degrees on Sale (in reply to: Shanghai Jiao Tong University)
Education in Canada is so commodized today that there is little difference in quality so universities differentiate themselves by rankings like Shanghai Jiaotong. To illustrate my point, I was strolling through Toronto Chinatown and saw a street peddler selling UofT degrees for $24.95, three for $75. All I had to do was show my high school transcript and pay 75 dollars. I went home with a law degree, BASc in engineering and the prestigious UofT MBA degree. What a potent combination to have, and for such a such great price too. I was really lucky to have my high school trasnscipt with me at the time, I always carry it with me. Otherwise I don´t believe I would have gotten the MBA.

Conclusions of reproducibility study:

"The data presented here suggests that the results of the Shanghai ranking are irreproducible. At least the data concerning the SCI indicator suggests that the authors of the Shanghai ranking deviated from the official published methodology when computing the scores of the universities."

Need I say more?

It´s one of the top chinese universities. Like the UBC of Canada. Not quite as good as UofT, but doesn´t such as much as, say, York.
