You cant put a scriptlet inside the jstl tag property, it should be in the content of the tag.
<c:set var="_i0"><%=_i0%></c:set>

You can use jstl forEach tag for looping
<c:forEach begin="1" end="10" var="_i0">
    <c:set var="_p0_7"><%=PolicyQuery.getINSURED_ZIP((Integer) pageContext.getAttribute("_i0") )%></c:set>

Try it this way.
<%      for (int _i0 = 0; ; ) { %>
             <c:set var ="_i0" value ="<%=_i0 + 1%>" ></c:set>
                  Long _i0 = (Long)pageContext.getAttribute("_i0");
                     <c:set var="_p0_7" value="<%=PolicyQuery.getINSURED_ZIP(_i0.intValue())%>"></c:set>
<%} %>

or maybe better  try  

<%      for (int _i0 = 0; ; ) { %>
                     <c:set var="_p0_7" value="<%=PolicyQuery.getINSURED_ZIP(_i0 + 1)%>"></c:set>
<%} %>

But  maybe better to go with forEach as boonleng suggested above  and as my last post at
