Pretty much everything. The Admin Guide contains more details such as

AD - Full backup of Windows System State where AD is installed

Exchange - Information Store which includes the storage groups & databases

SQL - SQL instances which includes the system & custom databases

Hyper-V - MS Hyper-V selection which includes the VMs and Initial Store / Host Component

What RPO/RTO do you want? Shorter periods would mean you backup the entire VM; longer ones means you can backup just the data you select.
