What does Local Search Distance mean?

What does Local Search Distance mean?

It means how far is each potential search result from the location term used in a search? 

If a user doesn't specify a location in their search, Google will calculate distance based on what’s known about their location.

Think of it as where you are standing.  When you do a mobile search for ~ Starbucks, you will get the nearest three Starbucks based on the "crow-flies" distance.

Or, do a search for "dentist near me".  You will again get the nearest three dentists.  However, drive east 4 miles, and do the same search again.  You will see that you get a different set of three dentists.
