It calculates the time between when a segment was sent and when the ACK
for it was received. So, technically, it's the RTT between the
measurement host and the data receiver. As Mani pointed out, the
accuracy of that will depend on the accuracy of the clock that the
measurement host is using and that pcap is putting into the packet
headers for the captured packets.
