    If you're visitors are mainly say Japanese, then use a Japanese test location on Webpagetest.org to your server. If you visitors are mainly from Germany, then use German location on Webpagetest.org. Then test other geographical locations your visitors are from, say if you server is in Germany and 70% of audience is in Germany but 20% and 10% are in Japan and India respectively, then you need to test Webpagtest using German, Japan and India locations with and without Cloudflare. If Cloudflare is working properly as a reverse proxy/CDN with IP anycast, then you should have faster page load speeds in Germany, Japan and India on Cloudflare as opposed to without Cloudflare.
