Is that just for measuring focus distance? The gate is the focal plane, and for your tape measure just find or make a place on the camera body, top handle, wherever you can that is in plane with the gate. Hook your tape onto that. Don't know NPR but all cameras are the same in this respect, aren't they?
Or was this about something else.

Maybe it doesn't have a mark. I don't know NPR. ACLs don't. The common symbol for the focal plane that may be marked on a camera for the focus puller is a circle with a vertical line through it. But if the camera doesn't have one, just set up your own. It's only for very short distances (macro) that the small error you may make setting up your reference mark will be significant.
