I find the Avonride blurb handy for trailer wheel/tyre/axle specs. Pdf is too large to attach here, but you can download it from the site:
http://www.knottuk.com/products/suspension-axles.html

Most 4x100PCD shown have a -30mm 'offset'

If you want to measure the offset, you'll need a couple of straight-edges, one against the rim and another against the hub face of the wheel, then measure the difference between the inside and outside rim edges to the hub face.
