The problem with those speakers (I had the older version of same model) and any 3" or 4" speakers is they have no bass response. Although their low end is listed down to 80Hz (which is about the low E on your guitar), in fact, the volume fall-off at that point is pretty steep.
Can you mix with them? yes. Will the mixes translate well to other systems? Not necessarily. You could continue to use headphones for checking the low end on your mixes. Then burn a CD (or transfer the file to a device) to play the mix on other sytems- car stereo, living room stereo, surround sound system, etc.

Personal preference for 'low' cost monitors is the JBL LSR305 - you can get a pair on sale for under $250 is you wait for the best pricing. They stand under 12" tall, too. The low end is rated to 43Hz, which is the lowest published spec you will see for any 5" or 6" monitors around.
