Maybe somone more knowledgeable than I can explain what needs to be onscreen to do the measuring.

But, according to the calculator here: https://www.translatorscafe.com/unit-converter/en-US/luminance/6-1/ 120 cd/m2 would measure at EV 10 on your light meter.

That translates to 1/60 at f/4 and ISO 100 according to the chart found here https://www.scantips.com/lights/evchart.html

However, if you're into fine art printing, you're better off if you buy a monitor calibration tool from a company like X-rite.

I assume you do all your editing in a windowless room with only a tiny, low-wattage bulb for a illumination, yes?

I also have an external light meter but the question is:

How do I know what correspond at 120 cd/mq?
