definitely


Explanation:
definitely for B, it's ice cold

More context would probably yield a better answer!

firmly


Explanation:
Many other possibilities exist depending on context!! (the sentence "bestemt til Bouvetoya er iskald" is basically meaningless without more context)

decided


Explanation:
"Bestemt" means decided or determined. The context doesn't make much sense...perhaps "B's determination is ice cold"? What's the rest of the sentence?

certainly


Explanation:
The sentence 'bestemt til Bouvetoya er iskald' doesn't really make sense. Anyhow, Bouvetoya (or rather 'Bouvetøya') is no person; it's an antarctic (Norwegian) island, and it's certainly ice cold down there!
