How to calculate the delay from flop to pin in FPGA with constraints?

Hi,

I have set min and max delay constraints for an output pin wrt an input clock.

 

set_min_delay -from input_clock -to [get_ports {output_pin}] 4

set_max_delay -from input_clock -to [get_ports {output_pin}] 13

 

I am analyzing the clock to output delay of the pin in multicorner analysis to know the delay for this signal from the last flop to output pin.

It shows a variation from 5.4 ns to 12.4ns across PVT(Slow to Fast process). But when I try to measure the clock to output delay on board by probing the input clock and output pin for a rising edge I see only a delay approx 5ns.

 

So I am doubtful whether my timing analysis is wrong.
