It is the amount of movement before the throwout bearing would make contact with the pressure plate fingers. It is measured at the pedal itself. The linkages will be moving, if everything is right, but there is a small air gap between the throwout bearing face and the fingers on the pressure plate. This is to avoid premature wear on the throwout bearing. Hope this helps.
