I think normally they write it the other way round: Am/B (???),
and it means it's an A minor chord with a B note in the bass,,

Yeah I think paerdeveygh is right here. I haven't got a clue how you would play a B/Am chord. In a split chord it's the chord that is written first followed by the bass note. Just try it as an Am/B and see if it sounds right! I'd be interested to see if it works, or if B/Am does actually mean something different!

Take it easy,

I've seen this chord written from the other end several times. Turned out it's just Am/B.
