They are httpd-style logs:

$ tail -1 /var/log/nginx/access.log
85._._._ - - [21/Feb/2013:18:_:_ +0100] "GET /w00tw00t.at.ISC.SANS.DFind:)
HTTP/1.1" 400 172 "-" "-"

However on Debian Squeeze the logs themselves are not world-readable (at
least on my system):

$ ls -la /var/log/nginx/
total 452
drwxr-xr-x 2 root     root  4096 Feb 21 06:25 .
drwxr-xr-x 9 root     root  4096 Feb 21 06:25 ..
-rw-r----- 1 www-data adm    934 Feb 21 18:40 access.log
-rw-r----- 1 www-data adm  20134 Feb 21 03:46 access.log.1
