Depending on how you define latency both could be right.

Qjackctl shows the sum of input and output latency - the time a
signal takes from an input of your soundcard to an output if
you connect the corrsponding Jack ports [1].

I don't know Cadence but apparently it shows just the input
and/or output latency separately, or it gets it wrong.
If you use -n 2 (2 periods) then input and output latency
are equal. If n > 2 then they are not, and Cadence *should*
show two different values, and the sum of those should be the
value shown by Qjackctl.

So try -n 3 and see what Cadence tells you...

[1] ignoring any additional HW delays that ALSA/Jack/Qjackctl
don't know about. You can measure the real delay using jack_delay.
