There is no such thing as ghost type in Why3 :)

No, the operations on int are non-ghost, so that you can still write a
program on mathematical integers without making everything ghost.
However, we consider that once you start using bounded integers, you
intend your program for efficient execution, and thus unbounded ints
are assumed to be specification only. If you want to combine range
ints and unbounded ints in the same non-ghost code, just define a
plain "val int_of_tt (x: tt) : int ensures { result = tt'int x }" and
use it instead of tt'int.
