The coordinates are global to the screen unless you specify a window ID. 
I.e., 0,0 is the top left corner of the monitor.

You can either translate the coords to global using globalLoc() or 
specify a window ID. From the docs:

"To export a snapshot for a portion of a stack you use the form:
export snapshot from rect[angle] of window windowID to ...
Where windowId is the windowId property of the required stack."
