Those are image pixels. That's what a raster image is made of, and if you zoom enough in, they become obvious.

 

With vector data you can zoom as far as you want, and it will still be rendered at full screen resolution. That's because it's not made of pixels, but mathematical formulae.

 

The main problem here is your expectations. When you work with raster images, you need to always consider the base pixel grid. Always make sure you have enough pixels for the purpose. If the pixel resolution her

You have fully hard edges here. A little anti-aliasing when you work will make the edge smoother.
