Most notably the damage output they can give in the space of X Amount of seconds, usually 5 Or 10.

Comparing a melee DPS to a tank DPS Hybrid in this case will show you the melee DPS has a lot more damage output either within the 5 Seconds or 10, Equating to a higher average amount of damage per second.

My main issue is why aren't more melee dps squishy and why do tanks have so much burst damage?

These tanks you're talking about probably have very little CC.

For instance Mordekaiser.
