+XOFF means that left window border should be
XOFF pixels from left screen border. Note that
XOFF itself may be negative (e.g. in
--geometry 100x100+-100+100) and then window will be positioned
slightly offscreen. Similarly,
-XOFF means that right
window border should be
XOFF pixels from right screen border.
-YOFF — they specify
distance from upper or lower screen border.
You can omit the

This option works the same as standard
-geometry option for
most XWindows programs.
Note that window manager may disallow or modify requested window position and/or size. Note that you can also of course change window size and position of the window while the program is running (by dragging window border and such).
