Hello, I was looking on the internet for the causes of SIGKILL runtime error, but I found nothing, can you help me?

It's not a runtime error in itself. It's a signal that tells the process to die immediately (hence SIGKILL).
A process may receive a SIGKILL from the user but I'm not sure what runtime errors would cause the operating system to send a SIGKILL on its own.

would that be called suicide?

This is typical for Posix:
This signal is usually generated only by explicit request. ....
The system will generate SIGKILL for a process itself under some unusual conditions where the program cannot possibly continue to run (even to run a signal handler).
