The 10mm and 8.5mm settings are measured to the centre of the pin with the car sitting on its chassis on the setup board (i.e. NOT on blocks).
The best tool to use to measure the droop in this way is a steel rule, it's very simple and easy to do.
You can use the 10mm blocks if you like but then you have to add 10mm to the settings and personally I really don't see the point.
If you want to measure it old school with a droop gauge, the Loic Jasmin carpet setup uses 6mm front and 4mm rear measured at the under side of the wishbone under the hinge pin.
