Yes...
Some Basics:

Disk Writes -> all write operations on your Disk
Page writes -> As you might be aware that In windows, Pages are fundamental building blocks of Disks and hence page writes occur when you do Disk write operations..

And this might happen out of your INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, INDEX Rebuild, etc., operations..
Hope this clarifies..
