First, latency is the time required for a packet to go from source to destination.  Tracert shows the latency between each routed device.  So, your total latency is the total of the latency between each device.

There is a much better command to use however to discover the latency.  It will give you results that are much more accurate.    This command is Pathping.

Here is a brief article on it and its use:
