[Moller_simulation] position of target in sims

I agree with everything you have. I do not remember exactly why I put 4
meters as the Hall offset from the target position, but it is wrong.
Fortunately the effect of this 2 meter offset likely only extends to
miscounting hall wall-sourced rebound radiation and missing the edges of
the radiation that hits the roof. I will make a pull request with the new
number (so it gets logged in github more formally) that I obtain from
measuring exactly the placement of the pivot in the MOLLER CAD. The pivot
and spectrometers were placed by me into the SBU MOLLER CAD a few years ago
and is exactly *6087 mm* downstream from the target center defined origin.
I don't remember exactly what numbers I was using to place it with respect
to the target, but hopefully this number is correct, and it is certainly
better than 4 meters.

I'm sorry my placeholder simulation geometry files are causing confusion.
Another concern with them is the radius that is implemented. This radius
was wrong at one point and I updated it based on the CAD, and this may mean
that the height placement or the radius of curvature of the roof are not
correct as well (though this is less significant hopefully).
