Please keep in mind I'm not a native speaker, so I may be wrong here.

"offsets" works, but I could change this to "displacements" -- you know,
sort of like not using a word in its own definition.  There would also
be no confusion between noun and verb senses, since "displacements" is
only a noun.

But maybe, since the docs are supposed to be clear to native and
non-native speakers, "offset-values" or "offset-amounts" would be best?
