Your machine, running a Tor client, initiates a connection to a machine
on port 22. This is your situation as I understood it.

All of the mentioned IPs are IPs of Tor nodes and all of them announcing
port 22 as a listen port, e.g.,  Amunet9, a Tor router, accepts
connections on port 22 and 80. By searching for one of the mentioned IP
addresses at http://metrics.torproject.org/relay-search.html. , you can
verify this. 

The traffic to port 22 is most likely Tor traffic and is therefore
normal behavior.

You can also download a list of current Tor nodes, but this list changes
regularly (once an hour). You find a list here:

Probably, you only need to whitelist the guard nodes, but the mentioned
list does not distinguish between the different types of nodes.
