What phrase can be used for distance of moving average? For example: distance between MA(5) and MA(10) is 1mm

The distance would be measured in dollars (or percent), not millimeters. The abscissa (Y-axis) is in Dollars - for any given date (the value on the X-axis) the "distance" between any two moving averages is in Dollars.

Wouldn't using MACD have the same usefulness?

How can I use MACD for distance of MAs, could you give the example?
Thanks.

The MACD is simply the difference between two moving averages - but that still has the units of dollars, not distance.

Here's an example for you.

Fetcher[set{diff, EMA(54) - EMA(18)}
set{diffratio, diff / EMA(18)}
set{18to54, diffratio*100.0}
and 18to54 above 0
add column 18to54
and price above 20
]
