The dir-spec.txt document 
(https://github.com/torproject/torspec/blob/main/dir-spec.txt) specifies 
what's needed for the different flags. For guard (line 2615) it says the 
following on bandwidth requirements:

- Its bandwidth is at least AuthDirGuardBWGuarantee (if set, 2 MB by
          default), OR its bandwidth is among the 25% fastest relays

So looks you need to have at least 2MB/s. Your relay is at 290KB/s
