Yes, I saw this word. But according to oxford dictionary navigability - ​the degree to which a river, lake, etc. is wide enough for ships and boats to sail on. I wasn't sure if I can reuse it here

Yes, in that usage, it is the degree to which a river etc. can be navigated - i.e. how easy it is for the ships captain to navigate their way through. It's exactly the word you need - but you're using it in the sense of how easy some code is to navigate by someone who is reading it
