Dishing offset number

Hi guys. I am going to use the online spoke calculator found at the Grin Technologies ebikes.ca website in order to find out what spoke sizes I need for my rear hub motor on my 20 inch folding bike. The calculator requires some measurements for the hub motor and I understand most, but don't know how to get the dishing offset number. The number is to be in mm. Does anyone know how to get the dishing offset number?

Like the website said, distance between the middle of the axle and the middile of the motor (between the flanges) is dishing offset. If I hadn't already laced the rim, it would be a better picture.

I would use a spoke calculator that just uses hub measurements. I.e., almost any other spoke calculator
