Replacing toilet.... rough-in measurement?

Howdy all. We're getting ready to redo our bathroom, and I have a question about the toilet. From some reading, I was expecting to have a standard 12" rough-in as appropriate for my house (built about 43 years ago). But when I did the measurement, I get just under 11 inches.

So... first I want to double-check how I measure this. It's from the wall to the center of the mounting bolts in the floor, correct? If my 11" measurement is accurate, then is there any leeway in this spec that would let me use a toilet with a standard 12" rough-in? If not, what do I need to go with then. I'm assuming a 10" rough-in in that case. Thanx for any help!

From the wall to the center of the flange. That would also be where the bolts line up as you have measured. I would go with a 10" rough in and elongated bowl.
