I think you are correct based on your measurement.
That 60 inches should measured from the plane of the stairs (i.e., a line drawn across the noses of all the stairs), so you should always take your measurement from the nose.
Also, I recommend that you be careful of your report wording: In your inspection, you were unable to find an indication to confirm that it was tempered glass, you haven’t really determined that it is untempered glass. Tempered glass should have a bug, but it may not always be there or be visible.
“A window within sixty inches of the stair surface could not be verified as being tempered or safety-glazed, which is required by today’s commonly accepted construction standards. Replacement with tempered glass or safety glass is recommended for safety reasons.”
