Where is the server of the XenForo official community situated now?

I see that XenForo official community with Cloudflare CDN has pretty fast access speed here (Shandong UNICOM, Mainland China).
By pinging your IP address it returns the result of a Cloudflare CDN node in the United States.

My cs-cn.pro website has its server situated in HongKong, and I wonder whether this doubles the connection time from the server to end users in Mainland China.

It resides in Florida, USA.
Thanks. Is this site using Cloudflare free plan or paid?
(If paid, no detailed information needed. This just helps me think whether paid Cloudflare free plan can have faster access speed from Cloudflare CDN to the end user.)

I found a solution that works well (CentOS 7):

(Use iptables and ip6tables to whitelist all necessary outbound ports first, then)
iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
ip6tables -P INPUT DROP
ip6tables -P FORWARD DROP
ip6tables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT

Now the server access is much faster.
